Hillington Square Phase 5 & 6
Freebridge Community Housing are delighted to announce that the long-awaited next phase of the Hillington Square regeneration project is due to commence in July 2023.
This next phase, which encompasses Farrow House and the last remaining sections of Ladysmith & Vicarage Houses, will involve refurbishment of the existing buildings and include the replacement of the existing lift core with a brand-new structure similar to those on previous completed phases.
These works will once again be carried out by our preferred contractor Lovell Partnerships, who undertook phases one to four - and we anticipate works on this phase to be completed in Winter 2024/25.
As with previous phases, there will be some unavoidable noise and vibration disturbance to those surrounding the scheme, but this will be monitored to ensure that we work within levels acceptable to the Environmental Health Department at the Borough Council and that we cause as little disruption as possible.
Working hours on the refurbishment will be restricted to Monday to Friday (8am-5pm) with any additional hours agreed and notified in advance.
Lovell Partnerships site contact details will be made available on the perimeter of the site boundary - this will include a 24-hour number for any out-of-hours issues. Freebridge Community Housing can be contacted on 0333 240 4444.
Members of the team from Lovell and Freebridge will be available for you to Meet at a drop in event held inside of Providence Street Community Centre on Tuesday 25th July between 8.30am to 10am and 3pm to 4.30pm. Individuals from both organisations will be available to show you plans for the refurbishment works and to answer any questions or concerns which you may have surrounding this next phase of works.
In addition to this, we're pleased to announce that the planning application for the sixth and final phase of the regeneration project has now been submitted.
