Some tenants on Wornington Green Estate already have permission to keep pets and have asked if they will be able to take their pets with them into the new development.
Our approach to pet ownership in the new development is still to be agreed as part of the new neighbourhood rules. In the meantime, we have agreed that Wornington Green tenants will be able to request permission from Catalyst Housing to take their existing pet(s) with them, as long as they have not caused anti social behaviour. This commitment to existing tenants has been made now, to clarify the position for tenants who will receive offers of a new home in the first block to be built. Over the coming months we will be doing a pet audit on the estate to establish a definitive list of all existing pets, starting with the residents in phase 1 (Faraday, Lionel, Wheatstone and Telford Houses).
Existing tenants on Wornington Green Estate must comply with the conditions in Catalyst Housing’s tenancy agreement relating to pets, throughout the phased redevelopment of the estate. All tenants must ask Catalyst Housing for consent to keep any form of animal in their home.
