Pupils from Sir John Lillie primary school in Lillie Road, Fulham, have been showing off their huge new colourful creations.

Their drawings are now on show on hoardings that surround the development site at nearby Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point. Some of the pupils were recently pictured with Cllr Lisa Homan, H&F Cabinet Member for Housing, at the site.

Cllr Homan said: “It was great to see the pupils get involved in making the development site look more colourful and show their ideas.

“This project will deliver new affordable homes for local residents. We’re asking anyone living on or near the Aintree estate to get involved in helping shape the new development.”

Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point are being demolished for safety reasons, on the advice of structural experts. All residents have now moved to new homes. Click here for more details about the project.

Dismantling of Lannoy Point has begun. And over the next few weeks, contractors will start dismantling Hartopp Point, too. While the works are underway, the tower blocks will remain enclosed in scaffolding and covered by sheeting to reduce noise and dust.

If you have any questions about the redevelopment, email the project team at HLP@lbhf.gov.uk or visit the project page here.
