Calls for Tottenham Regeneration Body

Tuesday 11th December 2012

A new report is calling for a regeneration body dedicated to improving the prospects of people living and working in Tottenham following last summer's riots.

The Independent Panel on Tottenham has made a number of recommendations including improvements to transport and employment opportunities.

Sir Stuart Lipton chaired the panel - and has told LBC 97.3 why it's taken so long to produce the findings.

"We wanted to ensure we produced a balanced piece which could really provide action for Tottentham," he explained. "There are wonderful people there, the community is strong and the problems of last year, I am sure, were created by a minority."
