Netley School named runner-up in hoarding competition

Netley Primary School has been named a runner-up in the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition 2016.

In May year 5 pupils were invited by our contractor Lovell to paint the Robert Street HS2 replacement housing site hoarding.

The pupils brought their artistic skills to decorate the hoarding with a scene depicting the four seasons in the Lake District to tie in with the Lake District-themed names of the housing blocks on the Regent’s Park Estate.

Lovell will be inviting other local schools and youth groups to decorate hoardings during the construction of the replacement homes.

HS2 replacement homes

Camden Council is currently building replacement homes for all council tenants and resident leaseholders set to lose their homes due to High Speed 2 (HS2), the new railway from London to Birmingham. Construction has commenced on six of the sites and should be completed by autumn 2017, ready for residents to move ahead of HS2 Ltd’s demolition works. Camden Council secured funding from HS2 Ltd for the replacement homes.
