Residents Notice

Lovell have been experiencing various phone calls from residents in Threadgold House regarding their Virgin Media.

An engineer needs to make contact with Dave Twells to arrange a visit to the site, as the fault exists with old cable/s. We advise you to contact Virgin Media and log the fault as well as this may speed the process up.

Should you have any queries regarding this or anything else to do with the scheme, please contact Alexandra Robins –

Residents Notice

Lovell hoarding will soon be erected around the playground area outside Threadgold House with construction work starting in that area shortly after.

Residents safety is of paramount importance to us and securing the playground with hoarding is not just about keeping intruders out; it is also to ensure the safety of residents and the general public. Lovell have been instructed to close the playground by LB Islington to allow us to carry out our works safely.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and should you have any concerns regarding the closure of the playground, please contact Alexandra Robins –

Please note that work has started on the new ball court which is due to open in Summer 2016.

Residents Event

Lovell have entered the popular CCS Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition and we need your help! The competition provides an opportunity for the residents and Lovell to work together in creating a piece of art for the community to enjoy.

We are inviting children aged 7 to 11 to join us at the New Ball Court site at Baxter Road on 23rd April to help create a unique piece of artwork on a section of the hoarding around the site. Once the hoarding has been decorated, Lovell will submit photos and information on the event to CCS Scheme by 3rd June, when the winning entries will be selected by a judging panel. All children who take part will receive prizes regardless of Lovell winning the competition.

We are planning on the event to take place on Saturday 23rd April at 11am. We do ask if you and your child/children would like to take part in the project could you please contact Alexandra Robins  via email or phone on 07976 225 300 no later than Wednesday 20th April.

For more information about the scheme visit the CCS Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Webpage.

We look forward to seeing you there!


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.
