Haringey Community Carbon Fund –
recipients announced!

These 6 community projects will reduce and empower the community across Haringey over the next 2 years.
• Collage Arts’ ‘Wood Greening: Championing Carbon Cutting’ project in Noel Park will be installing double glazing and LED lighting in their community space.
• The ‘Community-Powered Solutions’ project from Tottenham Green-based Edible London will replace their diesel delivery van with an electric equivalent to support the redirection and reduction of food waste.
• A ‘Tottenham Repair Café’ will be set up by Haringey Fixers to support the circular economy and upcycling in the area.
• In Tottenham Hale, Living Under One Sun’s (LUOS) ‘LoCaL3’ project will assess the feasibility of low-carbon living and support the uptake of community-led innovations in low carbon, low-impact food and energy production and cargo bike delivery.
• The Lordship Hub will install new LED lighting and solar panels on their community building, as well as hold monthly surgeries on reducing emissions, and identifying and nurturing local ‘Carbon Champions’.
• An LED lighting initiative at the Turkish Cypriot Community Association (TCCA) in Harringay is aimed at reducing energy use in their building.
The fund came from ‘developer contributions’ that developers in the borough have to pay to meet certain sustainability standards in new buildings as part of their planning permissions, which ensures that new buildings in Haringey provide positive benefits for local residents and the environment.
