Keep our estate clean

This year we’re focusing on reducing litter and promoting recycling around Vanbrugh Park Estate.

We’ll be putting up signs in front of every shared bin store to help you sort your waste, as well as updating the website for you to refer back to.

Together we can maintain a clean and tidy place to live.

Estate survey update

Late 2018

Residents request introduction of speed bumps, CCTV by the garages and marked car spaces.

Jan/Feb2019

VPERA conduct estate-wide survey. 77 households respond, between 70–80% are not fussed or support each change.

March 2019

VPERA discuss outcomes with Greenwich council. Their response:

  • Will investigate costs to introduce speed bumps.
  • Cannot support CCTV due to installation and maintenance costs, and doubts of effectiveness. Make sure you take highest precautions to ensure your garage is secure.
  • Will monitor parking via visits from the Tenancy Enforcement Officer as there was strong opposition by some households to marking Yorkstone.

Next steps

We’ll update you on further developments online, via noticeboards and at the all-residents’ meetings.

For more information, contact hello@vanbrughparkestate.com or the council’s Community Participation Team at lee.christie@royalgreenwich.gov.uk.

We’ve updated the history section of this site with links to download two articles written about Vanbrugh Park Estate. Both were published in November 1965 – two years after building was completed – and feature many interesting photos of the estate at the time.
