Barnfield Estate Regeneration The Royal Borough of Greenwich shares the enthusiasm shown by local residents and groups including the Friends of Barnfield Estate and the Barnfield Big Local Programme to push for improvements to homes on the Estate and for the local community. That is why we are pleased to confirm that work is about to start on a major £10million two-year refurbishment scheme which will benefit all of the homes and shared areas on the Estate. The Barnfield Estate refurbishments are the first major works taking place under the Royal Borough’s new Greenwich Homes Standard, which builds on the work previously delivered under the Decent Homes Programme.
The key priorities for the scheme are to improve the quality of the buildings on the Estate; including a number of environmental and insulating benefits to make homes warmer, help prevent damp and deliver savings on fuels bills.
Any existing repairs will be made to external walls on all blocks, which will then be coated and decorated in a special coating to improve the appearance and make homes better insulated. Additional improvements on the Estate will also include: • decorating blocks and shared areas • replacing windows • improving communal and emergency lighting, fire protection and entry phones • removing abandoned satellite dishes and TV aerials, and replacing others with a shared communal system • replacing block water tanks and pipework • replacing some roofs and insulating lofts, where required.
Important information about TV signals and satellites As part of the external wall installation works, any Sky TV dishes or other satellite services will be temporarily re-fixed to scaffolding on the blocks being refurbished.

Important information about TV signals and satellites As part of the external wall installation works, any Sky TV dishes or other satellite services will be temporarily re-fixed to scaffolding on the blocks being refurbished. Once the works are completed, all satellite and cable services will be transferred to a shared system and dishes will be removed. This may involve a very short period of loss to TV signal, but will also provide a much less cluttered appearance to the blocks and allow us to remove old and unused dishes.
If you are using a cable or satellite provider that is not Sky or Virgin Media, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01634 290500 or mobile 07792 153 504 to let us know. This will help to ensure that all existing TV channels can be covered by the new communal reception system.
Timing of Works This timetable is subject to change and there are many factors which may result in works starting later than planned. Prior to any works on your block starting you will be contacted by the Council who will let you know the confirmed dates for the work and details of anything that you need to do. A date has been set for residents to choose colours of bathroom and kitchen to their taste. A lot of thought has gone in to the planning of these improvements to enhance the standards of living on Barnfield estate.
