The £196m regeneration of Havelock Estate in Southall, London will be delivered by Bouygues owned Leadbitter. The firm will work with Catalyst Housing which Ealing Council has chosen as its partner housing association.

The project will see the construction of almost 1,000 new homes begin early next year, as well as the development of new park areas and landscaping, increasing the amount of public space.

Lead member for housing, Hitesh Tailor said: “I’m delighted with this decision, which is excellent news for Havelock residents and the Southall community. ”

Rod Cahill, chief executive of Catalyst Housing said: “Catalyst has a long standing commitment to the Southall area stretching back over forty years, which has given us an immense knowledge and understanding of the local area.

“Our proposals will be great for the people that live in the neighbourhood and will make a positive impact on the wider Southall area.”
