Bridport House topping out
Deputy Mayor Karen Alcock recently visited De Beauvoir to 'top out' Bridport House, the first phase of a scheme to regenerate the Colville Estate.
The new block contains 20 new council flats which will be home to 41 residents. The scheme was built after the Council successfully applied for £3.4m of funding from the Homes and Communities Agency.
Bridport House marks the start of a scheme to redevelop the whole of Colville Estate, which is found in south of De Beauvoir directly north east of Shoreditch Park. De Beauvoir Councillor Tom Ebbutt chairs the Estate Regeneration Committee through which the residents work with the Council to move the scheme forward. He joined the Deputy Mayor in Colville residents in 'topping out' the scheme (pictured above).
If you're interested, more deatils of the wider Colville Estate scheme can be found here. The framework planning application has recently been submitted and if successful means that the scheme is able to move forward to the next phase.
There are many people who have been involved in the regeneration so far, but Rob, Gulay and Tom would in particular like to thank all residents of Colville for their hard work in getting the process to where it is today.
