HAVELOCK ESTATEOver 100 council and housing association estates across London are under threat of demolition. Our research shows where they are.
Circa 500 homes of the 845 homes on Ealing’s Havelock estate in Southall remain earmarked for demolition.
The Havelock Estate is located in Southall, just to the north of the Grand Union Canal, and just to the south of the railway line to London Paddington. The estate exists within the wider context of the Southall Opportunity Area, which has been designated as the Mayor for intensive redevelopment.
Ealing Council says that it is redeveloping the estate in a joint venture with Catalyst housing association over four phases, and that the redeveloped estate will provide affordable rented homes (i.e. up to 80% market rent).
The replacement of the existing social rented homes with the affordable rent tenure is confirmed in the Mayor’s planning report for the scheme.
Phase 1 of the scheme is underway and nearing completion. Homes are being marketed for sale in anticipation by Catalyst at www.southallvillage.co.uk.
In April 2019, Ealing Council announced that it had written to all residents advising that a review of the scheme would take place.
There is no information relating to a right to return for tenants or leaseholders already decanted from phase 1.
