Transport for London update on Fenwick South:

  • 46 new council level rent homes are being built by Transport for London (TfL) for Homes for Lambeth
  • Existing secure tenants on the wider Fenwick Estate will have priority for the newly built homes under a local lettings plan
  • The demolition and site clearance contractor is Squibb Group: squibbgroup.com
  • The construction contactor is Mulalley & Co Ltd: mulalley.co.uk
  • We expect demolition and site clearance to be complete in March 2019
  • We expect construction due to begin Summer 2019
  • No homes are being demolished on Fenwick estate as part of this phase

Our demolition contractor has demolished the old buildings and is now working on strengthening the boundary wall and digging holes for new drainage to be installed. They are still working hard to minimise disruption to local residents, paying close attention to reducing noise and dust and trying to minimise disruption to local traffic and parking.

The site has been secured and the new hoarding will soon receive a final coat of paint.

When our demolition contractor has finished they’ll hand the site to our construction contractor Mulalley and Co Ltd., who will then carry out some site surveys. In the meantime we’ll work closely with Mulalley and Co Ltd. to finalise the design of the new homes.

Before construction begins you’ll be invited to a local exhibition where you can see the building designs and meet the project team. 

Squibb’s Senior Site Supervisor Geoff Barlex can be contacted on 07736018442. If any issues arise out-of-hours, call Squibb’s 24-hour Liaison Manager, Paul Blanks on 07973460849

    

Message from the Fenwick Tenants & Residents Association

It was great to see a good number of residents at the TRA Winter Party – we hope you enjoyed it! There were plenty of games, competitions and prizes to keep everyone happy, as well as a festive menu and tunes provided by DJ Glamzino. A huge thank you to the team of residents who worked hard in planning and putting on a fantastic event.

The party was also a great way to say a big thank you to Ron, who stood down as chairman of our TRA after 10 years. We thanked Ron for all he’d done over the decade with a presentation made by Councillor Tina Calcarcel, and welcomed Wale Age as the new TRA Chairman.

If you want to get in touch with the TRA or would like updates on events and activities, email fenwicktra@gmail.com or call 07939 857986

Lastly, we’d like to remind residents who smoke on their balconies not to leave cigarette stubs on the floor or throw them over the balcony, as it leaves a mess for someone else to clear up.

 


Happy new year from make:good at No.66 Willington Road

Jasper & Kristel from make:good will be back at No. 66 on Tuesday 19th of February 3.30 - 5pm to start getting the garden ready for spring and running craft activities for all ages.

We’d love to get as many residents involved as possible with our garden planning for 2019 so please do come along!
