Haringey Infill Housing


  • Client: London Borough of Haringey
  • Project Value: £2.8m
  • Brief: 26 homes across 8 sites.
  • Sustainability Initiatives: Two of the eight sites have been designed to the passivhaus standard

ECD are employed by the London Borough of Haringey on a number of small sites across the Borough which are being developed with infill housing. Each project commenced with a basic site analysis which was then developed into a feasibility study. Sites included both empty lots and garage sites some of which are set within the Conservation Area. These schemes are funded by Housing Revenue Account (HRA) and are being developed to deliver high quality, (mostly) affordable, housing to help Haringey meet the changing needs of the community. A couple of the sites have been developed to the Passivhaus Standard and one of these is to be sold in the open market to raise funds for further affordable housing.

The Phase 1 sites, which are currently on site, are widely spread across the borough but are generally of similar size capable of accommodating up to 10 dwellings. The sites have very different specific constraints such as access; rights of way; daylight; TPOs; boundary condition; site levels.

With this first phase of new developments on site, the Council identified a further 9 sites (Phase 2) for potential development. ECD prepared outline feasibilities for these additional sites within their tight 4 week programme enabling the client to submit an additional funding application to the HRA.
