Regeneration project: The Carpenters Estate

Regeneration project: The Carpenters Estate

The Carpenters Estate is in a great location in the centre of Stratford in the London Borough of Newham. The site is 23 acres next to Stratford Station, which ensures excellent national and international transport links. Stratford will have even better links to London once the Crossrail services start running towards the end of 2020. The estate is also next to Westfield Stratford City shopping centre which opened in 2011, as well as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 

The Carpenters Estate was built in the 1970s and there are 710 homes, 434 in three high rise blocks (James Riley Point, Lund Point and Dennison Point), and 276 in low rise blocks and terraced houses. Newham Council is the majority freehold owner of the estate, with part being owned by the Worshipful Company of Carpenters. 

Non-residential land uses within the estate include a primary school, a crafts college, community centre, public house and convenience store, with light industrial use by the railway viaduct. 

The estate was previously managed by a Tenant Management Organisation (TMO), with management transferring back to Newham Council in 2015.

Noise and disturbance during the work 

We and our partners ask contractors to sign up to a considerate contractor scheme to keep disturbance to people living next to building sites to a minimum. We also make sure that sites do not cause problems for residents between demolition and building by making sure they are secure and used for positive activities.
