Garage Surveys

You may have noticed that our team has been carrying out survey work on the garages to Warley House, Ilford House, Threadgold House and Ongar House this week. All tenants of the garages should have received notice of termination of tenancy directly from Islington Council last year.

These garages are scheduled for demolition in March 2016, if you still have items remaining in these garages please remove them by 29th February after which time our contractors will dispose of the contents and the previous tenants may be liable for the cost of disposal.

To survey the garages our contractors have removed the padlocks from each garage to gain access to check for asbestos.  Following the surveys the garages are re-secured using batons screwed to both sides of the door. Stickers are then be placed on the door to confirm they have been surveyed and inform us which garages contain asbestos. All surveys should be complete by 18th January.

Any asbestos found in these garages will be removed by a licensed asbestos removal contractor prior to demolition who will ensure the work is done in a safe manner ensuring no danger to the public.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Senior Site Manager Dave Twells at or call him on 07977 539965.

Meet the contractor event

Thank you to all the local residents who attended our Meet the Contractor event on 11th January at the Metropolitan Benefit Society Almshouses Hall, Balls Pond Road. Lovell and Islington Council were joined by architects Pollard Thomas Edwards and landscape architects Farrer Huxley Associates to answer your questions about the construction of the new homes across the Dover Court Estate.

It was great to meet so many residents and for the project team to have the opportunity to discuss the plans for the new homes and enhanced open spaces in more detail with you. We are currently reviewing the comments made on the feedback forms completed by those who attended and will respond to these questions in our first Dover Court Estate Regeneration newsletter which will be published in February 2016.

If you were unable to attend the event the information boards that were displayed can be  downloaded here. You can also contact Dave Twells, Senior Site Manager, who will be able to answer any questions you may have by email at  or on his mobile 07977 539965.
