A public consultation held at The Holy Trinity Church, Tottenham revealed emerging plans to reuse and redevelop existing buildings on Tottenham Green. The project will bring a much needed co-working hub, meeting hall and public cafe to an area which has suffered from neglect and civil unrest. The event featured drawings and models constructed by the Department of Architecture’s 2013/14 first year students. Work was exhibited in a 'toy box' style to encourage people to pick up models, play with them, talk about them and even do some impromptu design-by-breaking. These proposals secured a major pot of funding from the local authority and Mayor of London, £200k has already been awarded and a further £100k is expected. Without this funding the project could not become a reality in 2015/16.
