Update on the Options Appraisal
RBKC were due to hold consultation events on the Options Appraisal for Silchester East and West in July and September, with a Cabinet decision expected in November 2017. A Draft Leaseholder and Freeholder Options Policy was also due to be considered by Cabinet on 29 June, following a borough-wide consultation.
Given the catastrophic tragedy at Grenfell Tower, all work on the Options Appraisal and on the Leaseholder and Freeholder Policy has been put on hold. The study trip, weekly drop-ins, housing needs surveys, forthcoming residents’ meetings related to the Options Appraisal and the July and September consultation events will all be postponed.
Please go to https://www.rbkc.gov.uk/newsroom/council-capital-projects/silchester-east-and-west
for further update. RBKC will update these pages and write to Silchester residents again when they have further information.
On 23 March 2017 Hackney Council wrote to the leaseholders and the freeholders, living in Rosemary House, Sillitoe House and 1-4 Harvey Street – Phase 2C – who were unable to agree a purchase price through negotiation.

PPCR have been invited by East Thames (part of the L&Q Group) to provide Tenant Support Services for residents of New Union Wharf, Isle of Dogs. Once the incumbent Advisor retires in late May PPCR will act as the Independent Tenant Adviser for the Estate residents.
New Union Wharf estate is being transformed in partnership with the residents, through a rolling decant programme, from a 100% social housing estate to a mixed tenure development.
Residents on the estate have been heavily involved in the decision to go ahead with the regeneration. Hill Partnership was selected by East Thames in 2013 with inputs from the estate residents to carry out the regeneration work.
The New Union Wharf estate regeneration will see the existing 189 homes replaced by 399 modern, energy efficient homes. Residents have been working closely with East Thames and contractor, Hill Partnership, to ensure that the new estate meets the needs and expectations of the existing residents and local community.
