The London Borough of Havering announced a £1 billion contract and major new joint venture partnership with Wates Residential, which will see 12 Council estates regenerated to provide around 3,000 homes in over the next 12 years.

The project will see an overhaul of Havering's existing council accommodation. Delivering improved provision, the regeneration will increase council rented accommodation by 70% and build 400 low-cost home ownership properties.

The scheme will see the Council's current stock of 856 homes replaced to create 3,112 homes of mixed tenure, encouraging more integrated communities.

The right to return is guaranteed to every existing resident on the estates being regenerated. Any housing that requires rebuilding will be done on a like-for-like basis, to ensure no loss of existing affordable housing.
