Calverley Close estate
Number of homes under threat: 150
Landlord: Riverside Housing Association
Independent Resident Advisor: Source Partnership
Ballot Status: Required
Circa 150 homes are earmarked for potential demolition on Bromley’s Calverley Close estate in Beckenham.
The estate comprises 2-4 storey low-rise maisonette blocks overlooking Beckenham Place Park.
In 2017, Riverside Housing Association (which manages Bromley’s council housing) appointed architects to investigate options for the redevelopment of the Calverley Close estate.
In May 2019 Riverside instructed Tpas, an independent body which advises social landlords on effective tenant engagement, to review its tenant engagement on the estate after the Residents Steering Group openly opposed the redevelopment proposals.
Tpas visited residents at Calverley Close to ask for their thoughts and opinions about the redevelopment proposals and produced a report with some interesting findings:
The Mayor agreed funding in principle for the redevelopment in November 2018 (subject to ballot).
