The Council’s cabinet has agreed the next phase in a programme to redevelop several of Ealing’s high intervention estates, which were identified last year as being in desperate need of modernisation.
Councillors gave the go ahead for developers to be found for the regeneration of Allen Court, and to sell Dovehouse Court on the Wayfarer Estate. The block was once used as emergency accomodation for homeless people, but it falls well short of modern standards and would cost millions to refurbish, says the Council. The block and surrounding land would be sold to a developer to provide new social housing, if the scheme is approved by a full Council meeting.
This follows the tenders for Rectory Park and Copley Close (pictured), and the award of preferred developer status to Rydon Homes for Green Man Lane. It all stems from a review last year of all 34 estates in the borough which resulted in seven being prioritised for regeneration (in addition to Green Man Lane).
Work is now underway to decide what should be done to transform the Havelock, Dean Gardens and Golflinks estates which have also been prioritised for improvement, while work on the South Acton estate is already well underway.
