Secretary of State Eric Pickles has approved LB Harrow’s Compulsory Purchase Order for leasehold homes on the Mill Farm Estate, a move which will ease the regeneration programme.
Catalyst plans to create 158 new homes on the estate in a £22million regeneration project. Work is under way, and some of the planned homes are complete and inhabited. The CPO eases the way for the remainder of the regeneration, allowing the council to buy leasehold properties if a negotiated settlement cannot be reached.
