Bourne Estate regeneration
Bourne estate Regeneration
In December 2010 we adopted a 15 year Community Investment Programme (CIP) to generate extra funding to be able to invest in schools, homes and community facilities.
The Bourne Estate, located in the Hatton Garden area of Holborn, was identified as a place which could benefit from redevelopment work. The majority of the estate was built between 1901 and 1903 and is now Grade II Listed.
The northern part of the estate, north of Portpool Lane, is historically intact and made up of tightly packed, five-storey blocks.
In comparison, the southern part of the estate is made up of an original Grade II Listed estate, two post-war residential blocks, Mawson and Gooch House, sports and play facilities.
In spring 2012 Matthew Lloyd Architects were appointed to take the scheme forward to planning.
On the 28 February 2013 we were granted planning permission by development control. You can look at the planning application on the link below:
The approved scheme provides 75 new homes for the estate , which includes the replacement of 20 flats in Mawson House. These homes will be a mix of private sales, shared ownership and homes for council tenants.Contractor appointment
Higgins Construction have been appointed to carry out this scheme. The works started in May 2014 and they are scheduled to be completed in August 2016.
