Haringey is a London Borough found in the northern part of the city, which is sometimes classified as an inner-city borough and sometimes as a part of outer London. The borough is situated towards the heart of North London and shares borders with six other boroughs, travelling clockwise from the northern point these are Enfield, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Islington, Camden and Barnet.
The borough itself may not be one of London’s best known but it does contain a number of very recognisable and famous landmarks and features. Some of the most notable are the likes of Alexandra Palace, Bruce Castle, Jacksons Lane, Highpoint I and II, and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
The formation Of Haringey
The London Borough of Haringey was officially formed on the 1st April 1965 as a direct result of the passing of the 1963 Local Government Act, which was the piece of parliamentary legislation that formalised the make up of Greater London as we would recognise it today.
The borough of Haringey was created as an amalgamation of the former Municipal Borough of Hornsey, the Municipal Borough of Wood Green and the Municipal Borough of Tottenham which had all previously been part of Middlesex.
The newly created council therefore needed a new coat of arms, and unlike other new boroughs, Haringey decided not to cannibalise elements of the old borough’s heraldry. Instead, they adopted a black and gold colour scheme and included a cogwheel for industry and a rising sun for the new borough.
The population of Haringey
According to the latest available census data, the London Borough of Haringey has a permanent resident population of around 255,000 people. This gives the borough an approximate population density of around 22,000 per square mile, which is an undoubtedly lofty figure.
Having such a high level of population has a number of effects on the borough, including making it busy, active and a more common location for accidents and injuries. It is the third of these impacts, therefore, which leads us to briefly discuss the issues surrounding Haringey accident claim proceedings.
