External Works – Dover Court Estate

External works are underway, with the area between Ilford House and Block D soon to be completed. For works to progress across the Dover Court Estate all residents with a parking bay in front of Warley House and in between Ongar House and Westcliff House will be relocated to the new parking bays outside Block D.

Works will include the realignment of Baxter Road, completion of the final park area and the front gardens to Ongar House. 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. Works will be carried out in areas to try and minimise the impact to the residents.

Ongar House front garden works are due to commence Wednesday 19th August and should take approximately 4 weeks to complete. All residents at Ongar House have been notified separately regarding these works with a full description of the process.

Warley House works are due to commence week commencing Monday 26th August and should take approximately 4 weeks to complete. These works will include hard and soft landscaping to the footpaths, road/parking and surrounding areas. Play equipment for the area between Warley House and Block G is due on site mid-September with installation programmed shortly after.

Baxter Road will be closed from the end of September, this will be a full closure including parking bays. This will be from the parking area outside Warley House to the small carpark outside Callaby Terrace on Henshall Street.

The access road running through Westcliff will be partially closed within the next 8 weeks. Due to diverted routes, works to the new path running from Westcliff House to Romford House will be in stages to minimise the impact to the residents. The first stage will be the area between Ongar House and Westcliff House.

The suspended parking bays on Dove Road will remain suspended until September 2020 . Parking bays along Baxter Road will be suspended from September 2020 . Residents with parking bays in front of Warley House and between Ongar House and Westcliff House will be contacted by Islington Council to discuss alternative parking arrangements during the Baxter Road resurfacing works.
