Second Stage for South Acton Estate
and its partner Catalyst Housing Group have secured £9.2 million
from the Housing Corporation to continue with the revitalisation of the
South Acton Estate it was announced this week. 101 new homes
will be built in the area south of the Bollo Bridge Road and will be a
mixture of housing association, shared ownership, key worker and privately
owned accommodation. Some of the existing blocks will be refurbished with
the rest being demolished and rebuilt.
The council and its partner agencies - Action Acton, the Health Authority, Police and Catalyst are also working together to tackle the wider issues of employment, training, community safety, health and leisure facilities. Rod Cahill, Catalyst Group Chief Executive said, "We are delighted to be able to continue to build on the existing successful and innovative partnership approach to the regeneration of the South Acton Estate and the wider Acton area." Cllr Anand added, "Residents who have moved into the new properties in the centre of the estate have told me that they are really happy with the improvements that we have made. Now we can now get on with working to really improve the quality of life and creating a better environment for even more residents."
