SHERWOOD CLOSE ESTATE

Over 100 council and housing association estates across London are under threat of demolition. Our research shows where they are.

Sherwood Close estate

Number of homes under threat: 209

Landlord: Ealing Council

Developer: Clarion Group

Ballot Status: Exempt

Planning Status: Approved

209 homes on Ealing’s Sherwood Close estate are being demolished in a joint venture with Clarion housing association.

The scheme is being funded by the Mayor and has been exempted from his requirement to ballot residents on the demolition of their homes.

Planning consent was granted in 2015 and while phase one of the scheme has recently been completed, phase two is still under construction. The third and final phase is due to start decanting in early 2020.

Clarion says that “298 homes will be built at Sherwood Close, including 184 homes for market sale and 114 for affordable home ownership/rent.” and “Every resident will have the right to return to the estate, as well as advice and assistance if they seek a new form of tenure.”

The section 106 agreement for the scheme secures 109 social rented homes - this will result in a net loss of 100 social rented homes.
