Regeneration: what's happening

Prior to the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the Council was looking at a number of potential housing regeneration projects in the borough. The work on these projects has been stopped.

We appreciate that many residents were directly affected and faced a long period of uncertainty over the future of their homes. We would like to thank you for your patience and for working with us over the years.

The future

Our ambition is still to build additional, much needed, homes in the borough. We are continuing to look for land and sites on which to build new homes. We still want to create great places to live, in which communities can grow and thrive.

We are committed to fully involving residents in all of our future plans and allowing them to shape the decisions about what happens to their communities. We are also launching a consultation with residents, living in our housing, on how they wish to be communicated to and engaged with. Residents will be directly involved in appointing independent advisors to work with them on this.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at

Draft Leaseholder and Freeholder Options Policy

This was due to be considered by the Council’s Cabinet on 29 June 2017, following a borough-wide consultation. This was postponed and has now been put on hold.

Portobello Square (Wornington Green Estate)

Catalyst received planning consent from the Council for a major regeneration in 2010. Building works are well underway and the first new homes are now being lived in. It will however take around 12 years to deliver a major change to the north end of Portobello Road and Wornington Road, providing many more homes in the borough, and an opportunity to improve the local park and play facilities. You can find out more about this project on Catalyst's Here & Now website.
