Verity Close

Have your say on Verity Close community garden space.

Thanks to all Verity Close residents for coming along to the final stage consultation of the Verity Close communal garden space on Friday. 
During this session, residents were able to see the final designs and talk to the designers, Urban Growth, about any concerns and questions they had. 
Residents were able to say what kind of food they would like to grow in the garden, whether they would like individual beds or collective growing, gym equipment and play facilities. 
The garden will be funded by the Mayor of London’s Future Neighbourhood Fund, and the Grenfell Housing Legacy Fund, to transform the green space on Verity Close into a communal garden for residents to use and enjoy. 
If you were unable to attend, you can view the options below and provide your feedback by the end of Wednesday 7 Dec by emailing Alana at or Sarah at 
We look forward to hearing your views.

Verity Close Flats

Verity Close Flats residents put new kitchens and bathrooms as their top two picks for the upcoming refurbishment. They were also interested in options to redesign the layout of the close.

Verity Close House

Soundproofing topped the list of priorities for residents of Verity Close houses for the upcoming refurbishment. Replacing kitchens and bathrooms and installing a new boiler was also high on the list of priorities. Outside, residents also wanted to have a main gate to the close installed.
