Case study report: London Borough of Haringey
Well integrated industrial sites are important for ensuring that businesses with noise, odour or logistics issues do not affect residential areas. Haringey is a borough home to a number of such industrial sites.
Haringey is representative of small, low-density, inner-city industrial zones which are embedded into their neighbourhoods. With the growth of demand for housing and the increasing of land prices, sites like those found in Haringey are under serious threat from gentrification.
The totality of the companies analysed in the Borough of Haringey (including but not limited to the companies within the focus areas) can be categorised into different industrial trades and industrial activities.
