COMMENT ON PROVEWELL WAREHOUSES
Several warehouse tenants across HWD have created space to grow plants and vegetables outside of their units. Some of the spaces, particularly along Overbury Road, have started to infringe the public pathway by encroaching on the pavement. This proposed idea is a way to occupy the streets with agreement and permission from Haringey Council via a formal planning application.
Creating a series of parklets along Overbury Road to accommodate trees, plants, seating and Eurobin banks. Additional space created lets tenants utilise more of the outdoor space on Overbury Road
Tree planting and greenery will help change the local biodiversity of the area. The following criteria for planting has been proposed:
A deciduous shrub. Leaves are palmate and prominently veined. Flat clusters of white flowers appear in spring and summer, followed by bright red berries in autumn. Great for wildlife.
An upright, deciduous shrub or small tree with spreading branches bearing oblong to elliptic, dark green leaves, bronze when young and turning orange and red in autumn. Pendent racemes of white flowers in mid-spring are followed by purple-black fruit. Great for wildlife.
A slow-growing bush is evergreen with rough bark and dark green leathery leaves. Rosy-pink pitcher-shaped flowers appear in autumn in panicles as the red, strawberry-like fruits.
A tender, compact, evergreen shrub with attractive green foliage and fragrant, creamy white flowers. Delicate fragrance.
A compact, bushy, evergreen subshrub with oblong, aromatic, grey-green leaves and terminal racemes of pale purple flowers in summer. Lovely fragrance and colour.
Bulbs offer great opportunities for colour and structure throughout the year. They can also be given to residents to plant, as their planting instructions are easy to follow.
