Resident procurement panel

May 2022

We will soon be advertising for contractors to build the renewable heat network at Lancaster West. We would like to see lots of residents involved with this process, so that the appointed contractors understand who their end customers are and the high-quality service which will be expected. 

You can get involved by volunteering for a working group that will set questions to potential suppliers or score bids from the comfort of your own home. 

Choose a way that suits you! If you are interested in helping us select the heat network contractors, please click here to complete this quick form online.

Lancaster West Community Fridge on BBC Radio 2 and The One Show!

mAY 2022

Lancaster West Community Fridge was featured on BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show and The One Show sharing the everyday things we can all do to help the planet. Emma, who volunteers at the fridge on Lancaster West every week, talked about the impact the fridge has on the local community, and what they are doing to tackle food waste. 

The fridge is based at North Kensington Resource Centre between Testerton and Hurstway Walk on Lancaster West Estate and is open twice a week: Wednesday 2.30-5.30pm and Thursday 12-3pm. It's open to all local residents to come, share food and recipes, and has become a space to socialise.

Lancaster West’s new water bottle refill station

March 2022

There’s a new bottle refill station outside the Tea Garden on Lancaster West.

Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team hopes this new drinking water fountain will help encourage reuse and refill, which in turn will help to keep Lancaster West plastic free! 

As bottled water is around 900 times more carbon intensive than tap water, switching to reusable water bottles is a great way to help reduce your carbon footprint and is a small step to helping with the ambitious target of becoming a carbon-neutral estate by 2030!
