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.
RESIDENT DROP-IN SESSION MONDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER 16.30 to 18.00
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.
Report on The Garden Classroom’s – Summer on the Green – August 2019
Lovell very kindly contributed £500 towards our Summer on the Green programme which ran on Newington Green over three weeks in July and August this year. Although the weather was more changeable than last year we only had to postpone on one occasion when heavy rain was forecast all day. Apart from that we found that parents/carers dodged the showers and joined us for as long as they could.
We continued with our themed days with each day having a different nature focus. The programme was free and children of any age accompanied by an adult, were welcome to drop in and stay for as long as they liked. The sessions which lasted from 10.00-2.00 were very well attended with an average of 25 children coming along each day accompanied by older siblings and parents or grandparents. The children were evenly split between boys and girls and 0-5 year olds and 6-12 year olds. On the few very hot days the families who came from the adjacent tower blocks were particularly glad to have the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the shade of tree-lined Newington Green. Many of them brought picnic lunches and stayed for the day, making new friends and staying after we had closed for the day.
Here’s some of the feedback from parents:

We write to inform you as part of the renovation works at Dover Court Estate we will begin excavation works to Baxter Road. These works will take place at the front of Warley House for the new Thames Water mains to Block G. These works are due to commence on Tuesday 25th June and should take approximately 5 working days to complete. Please note that the backfilling works will not be completed until Monday 1st July.
Due to the ground works this may result in an increase of noise levels. Whilst these works take place we will be monitoring the noise levels and we’ll do everything we can to complete these works as quickly as possible. Access to your property or parking will not be affected as all works will be properly protected and you should be able to park in the bay allowing access for other vehicles as well.
We apologise for any inconvenience you may experience whilst these works are being carried out and we are committed to providing the residents with the highest level of service.
If you have any queries related to the on going works, please do not hesitate to contact me on the details below.
