Play Space Areas Consultation
As you may know, we are rebuilding your estate to give all residents brand new modern homes. This redevelopment will also include improvements to the neighbourhood, new play spaces and better landscaping, which you have told us are so important for residents’ wellbeing.
The first new homes will be built on the MUGA (Basketball Court). We want to safeguard play areas, as we understand their importance to young people and the community. The MUGA will be reprovided, and we are currently exploring where this will be located and other potential areas where we can install play or recreational facilities. The West Kentish Town Estate Redevelopment Team are reaching out to young residents over the coming weeks to speak to them about the facilities they would like to see at these play spaces, as we recognise that they will be impacted by the removal of the MUGA.
Play Spaces For Young People
We are reaching out to young residents to talk about permanent and temporary play spaces, as we recognise that you will be impacted by the removal of the ball court. As the users of these spaces, we want to hear your thoughts on the facilities we are creating.
There will also be opportunities to be involved in designing the artwork for our hoardings with artists, participate in sports activities at the MUGA this summer and other activities.
Vacating Estate Parking on West Kentish Town Estate (WKTE)
As you will know from previous consultation, we are working to redevelop the whole of the West Kentish Town Estate (WKTE) and will not be re-providing Estate parking or garages on the new development. While the development will be “car-free”, meaning new residents will not be able to apply for a street parking permit. Existing WKTE residents will be entitled to apply for a replacement on their existing Street Parking Permit when they move into the new homes. No new car permits will be allocated once existing WKTE residents move into their new home in the Development .

You can register online. Please have your payment / rent reference number available, and details of all those living in your home.
When asked for the reason you need to move, tick ‘Yes’ - as your situation falls under “Other reason included in the Housing Allocation Scheme”. Should you receive a message that you do not qualify for the housing register, please ignore this. Once you are on the housing register you may receive a letter advising of your status.
