Housing association Catalyst Housing and its construction partner Leadbitter have secured approval from Ealing Council’s planning committee for its masterplan to transform the Havelock estate in Southall.

The approved proposals for Havelock will see large sections of the current estate pulled down and 922 new homes built in their place.

The regeneration programme will also create new roads, a new community facility and shops, and open up the canal-side to provide new public open spaces.  Work will be carried out in phases over 11 years.

The plans were developed by Pollard Thomas Edwards architects (PTEa).

Catalyst chief executive Rod Cahill said: “We’re thrilled that Ealing Council has approved our exciting plans for Havelock. I would like to thank the residents of Havelock who have given so much of their time over the past year to help us ensure that our plans address the things they like and dislike about their current estate. I am delighted that we can now look forward to starting work in earnest on transforming Havelock into a great new neighbourhood, meeting the aspirations of residents and the council.”
