LB Ealing has agreed to regenerate Dean Gardens Estate. The Council will now look for a development partner to regenerate the West Ealing estate, which has 209 homes.
A review in 2007 showed that Dean Gardens Estate residents had low satisfaction with their homes and the estate in general. Other key findings showed that residents did not feel safe after dark and were concerned about drug use, drug dealing and anti-social behaviour. Residents also commented on the lack of family sized homes.
At last month’s Cabinet meeting, approval was given to demolish and redevelop four housing blocks on Golflinks Estate in Southall.
Ealing Council will start consulting with residents and stakeholders next month about the regeneration plans and this initial round of consultation will last until approximately Spring 2010. It is hoped that the council will appoint a development partner in early 2011.
