Regeneration project: The Carpenters Estate

Carpenters resident engagement workshops 

Residents have been working with Newham Council to review and develop options for the restoration of the Carpenters Estate. 

Proctor and Matthews Architects, in collaboration with Metropolitan Workshop, were appointed by the Council to undertake a study of the Carpenters Estate and gather together in one place a comprehensive review of all past regeneration studies and analyse the common outcomes. The main purpose of the study was to identify the most favourable approaches for the renewal of the Carpenters Estate. 

These approaches, or options as they were referred to, were developed with residents over the course of five workshops between June and October 2019.  

All residents living on the estate were invited to attend, including those who have moved away but have the Right to Return. Throughout the workshops we have been listening to residents’ ideas, suggested changes they would like to see and their concerns about their homes. 

Feedback and refinement 

The options were further refined to include resident ideas and feedback and then all three options were presented at the fifth workshop for residents to review and provide detailed feedback. The feedback from all of the workshops will help shape the development of detailed design proposals for the future of the estate. 

In December 2019, members of the Cabinet were provided with an update on progress made over the last year on the future of the Carpenters Estate. Residents and Newham Council will continue to work together on plans for the neighbourhood during 2020 before Cabinet make a decision on the most viable restoration option for the estate. 

If you could not make the events you can arrange a 1 to 1 visit with the Regeneration team or Source Partnership at the Community Hub or at your home. Contact us or Source Partnership if you want to arrange a visit.
