The Big Green Passage Project
Project Category: Informal community group
The Harringay Passage is an alley/footpath that cuts through a residential neighbourhood surrounded by busy roads. After years of neglect and regularly being used for fly tipping, dog toilet, muggings, and other unsavory activities, in 2013 we formed a Friends group to clean up the Passage.
We are a group of residents who have been working together for 18 months, meeting up monthly and planning through an Internet forum, and then carrying out activities in evenings and weekends to improve Harringay Passage area. We want to transform an eyesore which locals avoid into an asset for the community, creating a pleasant route through the neighbourhood, acting as a focus for bringing people together to help with the activities, enhancing the local area, and creating a desirable route for people to use as they go about the neighbourhood.
We want to make the Passage clean, safe, and giving it a more welcoming environment. This would include planted green areas, along with interesting features such as street art, seating, and decorative lighting.
