Tenants and Households in Temporary Accommodation
Some secure council tenants will have to move home as part of the South Kilburn Regeneration Programme, as we demolish and redevelop blocks to deliver high quality new homes.
The South Kilburn Rehousing Team will contact you 12-18 months prior to the block you live in being redeveloped.
We will support and advise you throughout the process. Before we start demolition work on your block you will receive an offer of a new home.
Households in Temporary Accommodation
On 17 June 2019 the Council’s Cabinet agreed changes to its Housing Allocations Policy.
They included recognising that households living in temporary accommodation, on an estate being regenerated, are a part of the community. Therefore, they should have the same access to a new permanent home built on the estate as existing council tenants.
If you are affected by this change, and are now entitled to a new permanent home as part of the South Kilburn regeneration, you will have received a letter to confirm this.
Type of properties
At present the South Kilburn estate suffers from an over-concentration of smaller flats.
The South Kilburn regeneration programme will provide a more sustainable mix of housing types, which will meet the needs of residents in the short, medium and long term.
This will encourage a wider mix of household types within the area and provide opportunities for residents to remain in South Kilburn if their situation changes.
Your rehousing options
You will receive one offer of accommodation that meets, or at the
discretion of the council, exceeds the housing need of your household.
Your offer will be either:
(a) A permanent move within South Kilburn to a new home
(b) A permanent move within South Kilburn to an existing council property
(c) A permanent move outside South Kilburn, if you prefer, within the borough
Most households will only have to move once. However, a small
number of short term temporary moves may be required for some
households, to provide timely vacation of sites.
We will make sure this only affects a small number of households and
to minimise the length of any short-term move. Any household that is
required to temporarily move will have a guaranteed right to return.
If you want to move off the estate, we will try to relocate you to your
area of choice. However, this will be dependent on suitable homes to
match your needs being available.
In order to build high quality new homes the level of car parking across the neighbourhood will be reduced.
Access to a designated car parking space or on street parking cannot be guaranteed for residents unless they have a Disabled Persons Badge.
