TEST PROJECTS

Feedback from the local community has been they want to see more things happening – more leisure, recreation and cultural offers – to help animate the area and celebrate Tottenham Hale.

Test Projects are an opportunity to explore things residents and businesses would like to see ahead of long-term regeneration.  We want to work with local stakeholders to test ideas for projects which build on Tottenham Hale’s strengths. Beginning with a strong idea, a test project will need to bring together partners and agree a common purpose.

If this is agreed, and resources can be found, we will then work together to move into a test phase using small amounts of funding and/or resources (e.g. in a temporary space if it’s a physical project).

If the project has demonstrated it is successful and sustainable, we will work with partners to take it to the next level where it can stand on its own two feet without support. This allows for great ideas to be trialled and for skills to be developed.

We want to:

  • Respond to local needs: support the community including existing groups, organisations and businesses to deliver projects
  • Celebrate Tottenham Hale by building on local strength
  • Identify small projects that can be delivered quickly
  • Find imaginative and adaptable ideas that can inform longer term projects

A draft Test Project Approach has been developed and sets out how we can help to start projects in the short-term with the local community. A number of possible projects have been identified including food and drink production, improving public spaces, green and environmental projects, creative and cultural initiatives
