In March 2019, the Selby Trust and Haringey Council signed a Memorandum of Understanding which set out joint aspirations for the Selby Urban Village project. It sets out new ways of working including joint project governance to ensure the successful re-provision and development of the site.
Councillor Joseph Ejiofor, Leader of Haringey Council said: ‘The Selby Urban Village project is the first regeneration project that this administration has been involved with from the beginning. It is our gold standard when it comes to delivering change in the borough. It shows exactly how we intend to work with local communities in the future; where change takes place, it will be in partnership with those communities affected – and for their benefit.’
The chair of the Selby Trust committee, Mr Edward Ihejirika added: ‘For the Selby Trust this is a great opportunity to explore and improve the existing provision for our local community. We want to create an integrated, inclusive, healthy, sustainable, diverse, connected urban village on the site. Working with the council and our partners we’re excited to be part of the design and delivery of the village including the new building in which the Trust and it’s users can really thrive and continue to be a valued asset to the community.'
