A £10 million programme to improve council-owned housing estates in Havering is back underway. 

Work to upgrade the look, feel and safety of some of the borough’s estates was paused during the Covid pandemic but has finally resumed. 

“These works will include painting and exterior decorating work, grounds and footpath upgrades, and a complete overhaul of bike and pram sheds,” said a spokesperson for Havering Council. 

“Improving security and accessibility is also a priority for the project, with new fencing, lighting as well as improved signage and new access ramps, where needed.”

The programme is expected to take five years to complete and work has already started on Cherry Tree Lane Estate, Mawney Close, Dagnam Park and Hucknall Close. 

Kingsbridge Circus and Ongar Way will also be developed in the near future. 

The project will run alongside other regeneration schemes aimed at tripling the amount of council-owned and affordable accommodation in the borough. 

Petersfield Estate in Harold Hill has already benefitted from £1 million of extensive works across its nine blocks and the surrounding area. 

Councillor Damian White, leader of Havering Council, was given a tour of the site by developer BTS Property Solutions on Monday. 

“I’m so pleased that we’re finally able to move forward with these improvement works, especially after such a tough year for Havering,” said Cllr White. 

“I’m excited to see these estates brought back to their former glory. The local residents deserve somewhere that they can be proud to call home, and to know that they’re not being left behind as we press on with our wider-scale regeneration projects.”

Alex Sanderson, managing director of BTS Property Solutions, said: “BTS Property Solutions are extremely happy and looking forward to supporting Havering Borough Council over the next 5 years.

“With multiple sites already underway we are excited to see the improvements that are being made as the works come to completion.

“Alongside the works that we are undertaking, we are also engaging with the local community groups, social projects and businesses to create a long-term impact within the Havering area.”
