Save The Warehouses is a grass-roots, resident-led campaign for housing justice, community advocacy, and heritage preservation.
We are a passionate group fighting for the preservation and protection of Harringay’s historic warehouses and the thriving creative communities that call them home. Our mission is to safeguard these spaces, advocate for warehouse communities in policy and planning, and drive change by championing community-led development. Warehouses across London are home to hundreds of people in culturally-rich communities; they provide affordable housing and workspace for diverse and under-resourced people. They are more than just brick and mortar; they are integral to our community and living testaments to our shared heritage, industrious spirit and creative tenacity. Warehouses are cultural landmarks, providing affordable housing to thousands of artists, makers and craftspeople, and serving as creative hubs that nurture innovation, entrepreneurship and community engagement. Save the Warehouses is run by the community. Uniting like-minded individuals, organisations, and advocates who recognise the significance of these structures and communities, who are committed to protecting them both from threats of demolition, neglect, and insensitive redevelopment, and who work together on community-led development.

The historic Omega Works warehouses are under threat of redevelopment. These iconic buildings and the community within them could be destroyed.
Redevelopment plans for Omega Works would bulldoze the homes and businesses of over 100 people to make way for a ‘warehouse-inspired’ multi-storey block of luxury flats.

ADVOCATING FOR COMMUNITY
We are working to ensure warehouse living is recognised and protected by council policy, and that the community voice is leading any new development for Omega Works.
This is a resident-led campaign; the work is supported by a skilled network of volunteer members from across the Haringey Warehouse District. It is an enormous, under-resourced movement of community engagement and collaboration.
Omega Works has a rich history and defining character. Its iconic sawtooth architecture typifies the Haringey Warehouse District and the site carries the spirit of creative ambition for almost 100 years. It is an important piece of local heritage that should be preserved.
