On Friday 30th July, Camden held a ground-breaking event at the new Maitland Park development in Haverstock.
Set to deliver 119 new homes including 51 new council properties, a new outdoor play area, new TRA hall and improvements to outdoor green spaces, the development will transform the existing estate and provide the community with an important and useful asset.
The event was a chance to celebrate to sites progress so far and acknowledge this important milestone in the project.
Due complete in summer 2022, the new development will be at the heart of this vibrant community.
Councillor Danny Beales, Camden Council Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities, Culture and an Inclusive Economy, said:
“Through our Community Investment programme, we are proud to be delivering much needed new council homes in Camden, encompassing all types and tenures, alongside new and improved schools and community spaces where our vibrant communities can thrive.
“We are building homes that meet the highest standards, which are green, modern and have enough space for our families to grow - including at Maitland Park where we are working with residents to deliver 119 new homes, over 50 of which will be available at council rent. Each of the new building at Maitland Park will feature biodiverse roofs with solar panels and the estate will also benefit from a new community hall, enhanced green spaces and play and fitness facilities.”
The new Maitland Park estate will be the latest expansion of the Community Investment Programme, which has built 950 new homes and provided new council homes to over 1,000 residents, including 447 children, many of whom previously live in overcrowded homes.
The programme has also delivered some of the most energy efficient homes in the UK – helping residents cut their fuel bills and carbon emissions – and has built three new school buildings, two community centres and refurbished two homeless hostels.
