Project Overview

Phase 3 is the final phase of Portobello Square – the regeneration of the Wornington Green estate by Catalyst. The outline masterplan for the estate received planning permission in 2010.

It included:

  • Up to 1000 new homes for social rent, shared ownership and private sale.
  • No loss of social housing.
  • New commercial spaces.
  • Improved public realm.
  • Providing an improved council owned community centre building, to replace the current building.
  • Re-providing and improving the council-owned park, Athlone Gardens.

Work on Phase 1 is now complete and Phase 2 – which received planning permission in 2014 – is ongoing.

Combined, they will deliver 643 new homes – with over half for social rent – as well as new commercial space.

89 homes have now been delivered in Phase 2A. Work on Phase 2B is planned to start in the coming months.
