The redevelopment of the Ladderswood Way estate and the adjoining New Southgate Industrial estate is a project of major strategic importance for the Council and its regeneration ambitions.
The Ladderswood scheme is one of the first projects to be delivered out of the New Southgate Masterplan; Combined with the A406 development it will deliver significant benefits to the area and aims to transform this part of the borough into a vibrant and sustainable community. It will provide;
- An increase in the amount of family sized accommodation;
- Improvement in quality of life;
- Investment in local infrastructure – schools, roads, health services;
- Local employment and training opportunities;
Sherrygreen Homes in partnership with One Housing Group were appointed as the Council’s development partners for the renewal of the Ladderswood Estate following competitive dialogue procurement process as their scheme provided requirements of the local community and the Council. The developers appointed Mulalley as the building contractor and One HG as the housing provider.
In February 2013 the Planning Committee made a resolution to grant planning consent, subject to completion of a Section 106 planning agreement and GLA consent, for the new development that will create 517 new homes, 1,400 sqm of new commercial space, a community center and a new 80-bedroom hotel – bringing employment and training opportunities for people in the borough.
The new homes will range from 1 bedroom flats to 4 bedroom houses and be a mix of private and affordable, offering the residents’ choice, flexibility and affordability
The scheme will be designed to meet Code Level 4 for Sustainable Homes and a new ‘energy centre’ which will replace the existing district heating system that is currently housed in Curtis House. This will use the latest technology and serve the entire development, providing both social and private properties with hot water for heating and washing, and in addition generate some electricity which will help keep bills down.
