The council held a residents’ ballot in South Kilburn in autumn 2019 to make sure that the community continued to support the award-winning regeneration of the estate.
The result saw residents overwhelmingly back the council’s plans to rebuild the neighbourhood. 84% of residents voted Yes in the ballot, with 72% of residents taking part in the vote.

Housing Allocation Policy
On 17 June 2019 the Council’s Cabinet agreed to amend the Housing Allocations Policy recognising that households living in temporary accommodation, on an estate being regenerated, are part of the community. Therefore, they should have the same access to a new permanent home built on the estate as council tenants do. If you are impacted by this change, you will have received a confirmation letter.
