External Works Event

Starting in April, Lovell will commence the final external works to complete the scheme. Works will begin around Ilford House and Block D and will include the realignment of Baxter Road, completion of the final park area, Ongar House front gardens and refurbishment of the existing bin stores.

With hard and soft landscaping, new road and footpaths there will be some parking suspensions and road and footpath closures which will inevitably cause some inconvenience, but please be assured that we will do everything we can to minimise disruption to residents. Your cooperation and patience during this last part of the project is greatly appreciated.

Please join us on 9 March for our

External Works Event

Presentations will start at 4pm, 5pm & 6pm

in the new community space, beneath Threadgold House

This will be an opportunity for you to find out more about the sequence of works, meet the team and ask any questions about the construction process.

In case you are unable to attend, information from the session will be available to view at http://www.dovercourtregeneration.co.uk or contact Alexandra who can forward the information direct.


Open Doors Event 2020

Lovell are holding an “Open Door” event in March 2020. This wonderful project will give you the opportunity to attend a live site and have a look behind the scenes. It will also give you advise if you are considering a career in construction and take the next steps in progressing.

This is also a fantastic way for Lovell to engage with the local community.

The event will take place on Monday 16th March at 2pm and will last 2 hours.

If this is something you would be interested in please follow the link below and book your space today!


New Route – Ilford House

We are writing to provide you with information about the development works at Dover Court Estate for Phase 2. In January 2019 we issued you a letter regarding the works and what areas would be affected.

Hoarding has been erected around the car park at Ilford House and a temporary escape route from Ilford House turning right was formed. For us to complete the external works to Block D this route will now need to be changed. The hoarding line will be moved, and a new temporary path will be installed to the left of Ilford House. These works are due to commence Monday 10th February and should take approximately 2 weeks to complete, weather permitting. However, we do still ask that residents use the doors on the Westcliff side of the block as the primary means of accessing and exiting Ilford House during the works.

During the operation of construction, works will be carried out between the hours of 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on a Saturday.

Should you have any queries or concerns, please contact me on 0208 731 3800, alternately write me an email to Alexandra.Robins@lovell.co.uk.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and ongoing support. We acknowledge that there will inevitably be some inconvenience during the delivery of the works, but we will do our utmost to keep this to a minimum. We will continue to keep you informed throughout the project with regular newsletters and updates to the website. Also, please keep checking the resident notice boards as these are updated once a week for the latest news on upcoming works.

Lovell will be planning an event for Phase 2 landscape and external works. This gives residents the opportunity to meet with the site team and see more details about how the works will be delivered. The event will be held at the new community centre underneath Threadgold House. More details regarding the event will be sent out to residents in the next coming weeks.


We write to inform you that we will be working on site Saturday 30th November and Saturday 7th December, from 8am to 1pm. Noisy works will be kept to a minimum where possible. This won’t be a regular occurrence and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, as we are committed to providing the residents with the highest level of service.

The reason for Lovell working the next two Saturdays is to ensure that bricks and blocks are laid to avoid missing a floor plank date. As we don’t want to cause further delays to the programme by pushing the floor plank delivery back to the next available slot we need to be on site on both Saturdays to complete the brickwork.

As with all works being carried out by Lovell, we must balance possible disruption to the residents. Working during the week and Saturdays provides us with the best chance to complete these works safely and on time. We hope you will appreciate that there may be a level of disruption during the implementation of this scheme. If works are essential to be carried out on a Saturday, we will seek permission from London Borough of Islington in advance and ensure residents are made aware.

We would like to thank you for your cooperation.


Lovell is running a competition for all resident’s children on the Estate/surrounding area of our site. This Christmas, Lovell is giving all children the chance to win a Christmas treat.

They just need some help from their parents to share their fantastic artistic skills. So, whether you’ve got a messy mini Picasso on your hands, or your little helper likes to colour neatly inside the lines, it’s a fun activity for the lead up to Christmas.

This year we need help decorating the Christmas tree in our head office, therefore we would like to receive Christmas decorations. The decorations can be made up of anything and any shape, please turn over for some simple ideas. However please feel free to do something different.

The competition will run until Friday 6th December. There will be prizes handed out to the children when Lovell collect their artwork so please ensure that everything is handed in prior to Friday 6th December as we do not want to disappoint anyone.

Should you have any queries regarding this letter or your child wants to enter the competition, please contact me on 0208 731 3800, alternatively you can write me an email to Alexandra.Robins@lovell.co.uk.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and ongoing support during the construction works. We understand that there has been some disruption during the delivery of the works but we do our utmost to keep this to a minimum.





Our next resident drop-in session, giving you an opportunity to meet the Operations Manager & Senior RLO to ask direct questions about the scheme will be held in the Lovell site office—entrance in Baxter Road on 9th September from 16.30.
