The request was partially successful.

Dear Haringey Borough Council,

The building at 867 & 869 High Road, Tottenham, London N17 appears to be listed as Grade II under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest.

This is a distinctive and attractive old building, described in the listing as follows:
1. 4415 HIGH ROAD N17 (West Side) Tottenham ------------- Nos 867 & 869 TQ 3391 7/129 22.7.49.
Grade: II
2. Early C18 with alterations. 3 storeys and basement plinth. 5 windows each. High pitched roofs, that of No 867 renewed in corrugated asbestos, that of No 869 in Welsh slate. Brawn brick with red brick dressings, including bands at 1st and 2nd floors, and at cornice level; and segmental window arches. Stone coped parapet partly renewed in stock brick. Early-mid c19 sash windows, some with glazing bars. Early C19 doors, that of No 867 with patterned fanlight, reeded pilasters with lion masks and hood on carved corbels, that of No 869 with plain rectangular fanlight.
Listing NGR: TQ3386791633
National Grid Reference: TQ 33867 91633

Over the years I've noticed what appears to be a derioration in the state of this building.

Can you please supply me with the following information.
1. Latest up-to-date reports on the state of the building for both 867 & 869.
2. Information on the steps taken by Haringey Council to (a) prevent further deterioration and (b) to restore the buildings.
3. Information on efforts made by Haringey Council to secure funding to carry out such works.

Thanks for your help.

Haringey Council's acknowledgement contains a long final paragraph warning that this information is confidential and must not be passed on.
Please note that this is inaccurate . The fact that I have made an F.O.I. request to Haringey and that they have formally acknowledged receipt is neither confidential nor restricted any way.
If I had wished to write to them in confidence I would not have used a public website to do so.

Once they supply me with information it becomes public information and anyone can do anything they want with it. Again, that is one of the points of using this website.
My intention is to obtain information and share it with anyone who may find it helpful or useful.

Dear Mr Stanton,
Re: Freedom of Information Act Request ref: LBH/6309017
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 26 May 2017, in
which you asked for the following information:
 
1. Latest up-to-date  reports on the state of the building for both 867 &
869.
2. Information on the steps taken by Haringey Council to (a) prevent 
further deterioration and (b) to restore the buildings.
3. Information on efforts made by Haringey Council to secure funding to
carry out such works.
4. Information on the efforts by Haringey Council to encourage the
building's owner or owners to safeguard and/or improve the building.
 
My response is as follows:
 
1. Latest up-to-date  reports on the state of the building for both 867 &
869.
There have been no reports produced by the Council on this property.
 
2. Information on the steps taken by Haringey Council to (a) prevent 
further deterioration and (b) to restore the buildings.
(a) Discussions are ongoing with the current owners as part of an
enforcement case.
(b) There are no current proposals for the restoration of the building.
 
3. Information on efforts made by Haringey Council to secure funding to
carry out such works.
The Council does not consider this as a priority and therefore funding is
being concentrated on other heritage assets included in the ‘at risk’
register.
 
4. Information on the efforts by Haringey Council to encourage the
building's owner or owners to safeguard and/or improve the building.
As stated in 2(a) discussions are ongoing with the current owners as part
of an enforcement case.
