Hoard-it supports Wates on new housing scheme in Harrogate

Hoard-it are delighted to support Wates with the supply and installation of hoarding and associated gates at their Milton Road site in Harrow.

The project is a significant change for the area, moving from being a surface car park to making way for a major affordable housing scheme.

Hoard-it and Brand-it provided and installed 148 l/m of 2.44m High hoarding with Headers/ Kickers, as well as 15 l/m of 3m High hoarding, 1 No. Ped gate and 2 No. 7m Gates. We also amended 7 l/m of existing 2.4m high hoarding to 3m high.


The scheme is part of the council’s long-term regeneration vision for the city. This required the Hoard-it team to understand the visual requirements, and match those to our hoarding around the site.

Greg Guppy, Managing Director, Hoard-it said of the project “We have supported Wates for many years, and we were delighted to be able to work with them again on this project.

“With our hoarding systems being 100% reusable, we can add positively to Wates extensive environmental commitments and strategic targets, including optimising the use of materials and avoiding waste through resource efficiency. We look forward to our continued work with Wates.”

As well the site at Milton Road, Wates Residential, which is part of a leading privately-owned construction, property services and development company, the Wates Group, is also creating new homes for local people at Poets Corner. This is currently the site of the Council’s Civic Centre on Peel Road, which is off Wealdstone High Street and Byron Quarter, next to Byron Park.

These three projects currently form part of the Harrow Strategic Development Partnership, between Wates Residential and Harrow Council, which aims to build 1,500 high-quality new homes around the Wealdstone area over the next ten years.
