Bacton Low Rise Estate Phase 1

The redevelopment of the Bacton Low Rise Estate is a community-led estate renewal project, which Camden Council sees as the model for estate rebuilding in the borough. The first phase sets about rehousing the first members of the community affected by the rebuilding programme of the Gospel Oak Estates.

Built after significant consultation with residents from Cross-Laminated Timber and beautiful brick, it seeks to improve the lives of residents in a truly sustainable way while keeping the fabric and spirit of the community intact.
