Bullet point briefing: the latest regeneration news from Havelock

In the past month:

  • Bouygues moved their site cabins to the junction of Lockwood Road and Otto Drive.
  • Scaffolding was taken down on the last 6 private sale houses located by the children’s play area.
  • 13 private sale houses were handed over to Catalyst in January and February.
  • Groundwork London delivered a three day schools programme, with students from Havelock Primary School in years 3, 4 and 5. This was part of the Love Havelock project to promote waste reduction and fly tipping.
  • 100 native hedge tree plants were planted at Bixley Triangle in partnership with Sybil Elgar, Belvue College, Groundwork London and Ealing Park Rangers.
  • Catalyst will be delivered another free Level 2 accredited course on Safe Moving and Handling on 27th February.

In the next month:

  • Catalyst and Ealing Council continue to work together to review the future phases of the regeneration. We will keep Havelock residents informed of our progress. If there need to be changes to the original plans, we will ensure that residents have the opportunity to see and comment on these.
  • While we complete our review of the future phases of Havelock, the Catalyst office on Hunt Road will be open less frequently. Residents can still visit every Wednesday from 10am to 4pm; Catalyst Communities colleagues will be there to help with employment, training, and volunteering opportunities, as well as money, benefits and digital advice.  To talk to another member of the Havelock team, please call 0300 456 2099.
