We have worked with EastEnd Homes (EEH) and the residents of Glamis Estate, Tower Hamlets for over a decade to develop regeneration proposals for the estate originally comprising 366 homes in a mix of low, medium and high rise buildings.
Our first project was to support EEH in developing an offer to residents for transfer of the estate from Tower Hamlets. We carried out extensive consultations with residents to develop a strategy for improving homes and public realm across the estate, including security measures and landscaping improvements to address antisocial behaviour. Funding was generated via new build across the estate. We consulted with the Glamis Estate Residents Board, the wider estate via exhibitions and newsletters and with each specific block with via pop up sessions in each buildings entrance foyer.
Following the successful transfer, we worked closely with residents to develop the regeneration proposals as a series of projects via a series of workshops with a specially convened residents group.
As one of the first projects, we developed and gained planning permission for major alterations to communal area windows to eight storey Roslin House and all the low rise blocks, improving the appearance, thermal performance and maintenance of these areas.
In parallel we worked with EEH and their development partner Metropolitan Housing to review new build options. We designed and gained planning permission for a mix of 37 affordable and private homes on King David Lane. The building has a 4 storey wing with communal roof garden and a 10 storey corner block.
Throughout the design development, we have kept the same key members of our team allowing us to build a strong relationship with estate residents based on trust.
