The estate needs considerable maintenance, with several recurring issues:
Poorly designed streets means car parking is difficult and pavements can often be inaccessible
Poor insulation means homes are not energy efficient
Outdated construction methods and the age of the buildings causes condensation and damp
Outdated space standards mean homes are smaller than the current London Plan space standards
Homes are often overcrowded or under-occupied, meaning they don’t work many residents
Homes and flats are Wimpey No-Fines construction. Most banks restrict mortgages on these properties. This makes it hard for us to support you in owning your own home if you want to in the future.
Building better quality homes that residents love to live in
There’s a real opportunity to regenerate the estate, offering a once-in-a-generation opportunity to meet both resident’s existing and future needs. We will build high quality sustainable homes which meet modern standards, creating a vibrant and thriving community.
A redeveloped Douglas Bader Park will provide:
753 new homes including a new home offer for all existing residents who wish to remain on the estate
386 parking spaces, including 180 parking spaces for Home Group residents and 74 disabled bays across the three phases
Better insulation and ventilation, including central heating
Sustainable and eco-friendly homes
Enhanced green and open areas
An upgrade to the green space to the west of the estate
Improved security and design to tackle anti-social behaviour and create a safer, more secure estate
