LB Hammersmith & Fulham have agreed a £1.6m improvement project for communal spaces, gardens and play areas on three housing estates.
The Council’s cabinet has decided to invest the money improving the environment on Emlyn Gardens, Becklow Gardens and Sulivan Court estates.
Cllr Andrew Johnson, H&F cabinet member for housing, said: “Residents have asked us for certain improvement work to be carried out and we have listened. They can expect to see better looking, safer and all-round improved outside areas once work is complete.”
Improvements at Emlyn, in Askew ward, could include new landscaping, the reinstatement of a kick-around area and provision of an outdoor table tennis tables while Becklow, in Shepherd’s Bush, will have outdoor areas refurbished, new fencing put up around the communal lawn and external doors and railings repainted.
Sulivan Court residents, in Fulham, will see a disused tarmacked court turned into a green space, the car park resurfaced and improvements to the estate-based shops.
The funds for the project have been part raised by the sale of vacant properties on the estates that had become too costly to maintain. It is hoped that the improvement work will be complete by 2015.
