“Part of a master planning exercise undertaken at the time of the estate transfers identified the potential for some additional ‘infill’ units to be constructed on the Bede and Eric estates”.
from Eastend Homes Corporate Plan 2014/19
So yesterday (Saturday 23 May) after over 10 years they finally told us in the Eric & Treby Estates News what they they intend to do.
This will be the conversion of the disused garages and empty spaces at Windermere House and Wentworth Mews and the building of two extra floors on the roof of Windermere.
In the Newsletter Eastend Homes go on to say….
“Initial discussions have been held with your resident-led Mile End Estate Management Board”
This is not exactly true. We have known for a while about the idea of converting the garages but the building on the roof of Windermere has never been mentioned. It was only when a resident brought up the issue of building on the Windermere roof was it touched on at the Mile End Estate Management Board very briefly at with no “discussion”. More from the Corporate Plan……
“Initial appraisal work suggests that a pilot scheme consisting of 45 units with 14 social housing units could be developed”.
“If this initial scheme progresses successfully it would provide a potential model for increasing densities and supply throughout EastendHomes stock“.
