COMMENT ON PROVEWELL WAREHOUSES
The first meet up was held on Thursday 22 June. Focused mainly on the aspects relating to Overbury Road, a total of seven warehouse units were represented at the meeting – along with other comments from neighbouring units.
Joining the session was Ruth, John and Chris from the Provewell team who are overseeing various aspects of the project. James facilitated the Meet Up.
The session was all about hearing how people felt about the different aspects (Bins, Parklets, Traffic and Bikes). It was interesting to test assumptions and, on some aspects, discover that what was seen as useful was in fact creating other problems and vice versa. Other topics emerged, with people raising concerns about Tewkesbury Road in particular.
The Meet Ups are going to continue monthly. A suggested structure will be shared in advance, however any topic can be added by people registering for the Meet Up. A full write up of the event will be published here at HWDcomment.online/archive.
To address the immediate issue with refuse collection, a private one-off collection was organised with Provewell to get the area back to normal. This initiative also includes agreement from Haringey Council & Veolia to restart recycling collections (see updates below).
