HARRINGAY WAREHOUSE DISTRICT
Harringay Warehouse District (HWD) is in the process of being covered by Local Planning policy that protects warehouse living.
Provewell, who manage HWD, want to protect warehouse living and have no intention of selling the site to external developers.
The planning policy means that aspects across the area need to be made safer, more sustainable and generally improved as a place for warehouse living.

The cost of development is a separate to rental income. Provewell has funds set aside for developing the area.
There is no significant hike in rent planned to accommodate the changes proposed.
There are no plans to evict anyone to accommodate any of the developments planned. If, at some point in the future, a warehouse property is deemed unsafe or unsuitable for living, adequate notice will be given to allow tenants to find alternative accommodation in the area. Nothing would start until everyone has a new place to live.
The team are very aware that the DIY aspect is what brings the character to warehouse living and the importance it has with tenants for self-expression. All of the plans intend to accommodate rather than exclude this characteristic. Current tenants have already been involved in the design of aspects and more opportunities will follow.
