As part of the Government’s Future High Street Fund initiative, We Made That have recently submitted Stage 2 funding bids for Tottenham High Road (London Borough of Haringey) and March Town Centre (Fenland District Council) on behalf of the respective local authorities. The projects have a combined ask of c. £25m towards transformative projects creating resilient High Streets and Town Centres fit for the future. The bids were developed with our long-term collaborators Hatch Regeneris, alongside wider teams including Urban Movement, PRD, Gort Scott, Authentic Futures and Stockdale.
By skilfully balancing the needs of the local area and requirements of the funder, the team proposed a varied programme of interventions; from a transformative public realm re-think at the town centre and series of small scale mixed-use development proposals in March, to a major upgrade of the youth centre and extension of three public markets in Tottenham.
We await the outcomes with bated breath in autumn 2020! In the meantime continue to assist with urgent Covid-19 response initiatives and further project development work.
