Church End, Brent

The regeneration of the Church End area is now complete following a transfer of 1,500 homes from Brent Council in 1998.

The history

The Church End Resiform estate was part of a stock transfer in 1998 from the London Borough of Brent to Fortunegate Community Housing (now Catalyst Housing).

The estate was redeveloped in five phases, all of which are now complete. The new development provides houses with gardens for many residents who had been living in poorly built flats with no access to decent outdoor space.

The project also included the development of a large community centre (The Unity Centre).

What we did

  • Refurbished 713 homes in the Roundwood and Church End Traditional areas.
  • Redeveloped 556 homes in the Church End estate in four phases.
  • Built a brand-new community facility (the Unity Centre) that’s located in the heart of the community.
  • Made sure all existing residents had homes in the new area and preserved their right to buy.
  • Built 161 homes for sale at Craven Park (the last phase of the regeneration) which residents started moving in during early 2015.
