Housing association Catalyst Housing has been selected to deliver the regeneration of the 904-home Havelock Estate in Southall.

Catalyst, along with partner Leadbitter Group, will provide new homes for social rent and shared ownership, as well as 427 homes for private sale.

The proposals also include a £1 million community regeneration fund with a £100,000 “community chest” to support local projects.

Ealing Council’s cabinet unanimously approved the decision to select Catalyst.

Hitesh Tailor, lead member for housing at the council, said: “I’m delighted with this decision, which is excellent news for Havelock residents and the Southall community.  I look forward to seeing the Havelock Estate transformed into a more pleasant and safer place where people really want to live.”

Rod Cahill, chief executive of Catalyst Housing said: “Our proposals will be great for the people that live in the neighbourhood and will make a positive impact on the wider Southall area. “Alongside the high quality new homes, our investment in employment and community initiatives will provide real jobs and training for local people.”

Catalyst and Leadbitter have brought on board architects PTE, who designed Catalyst’s award winning Page Road regeneration scheme in Hounslow.
