Housing action trust
HATs were intended to have a short life. After completing regeneration of their estates, the HATs transferred ownership of the tenanted housing estates to other social landlords, in some cases setting up local housing associations that later formed group structures with other associations. All the HATs' residuary assets and undertakings then passed to English Partnerships.
Housing Action Trusts
The six housing action trusts were as follows.
- North Hull HAT was the first to wind up, in 1999.
- Liverpool HAT demolished 54 high-rise blocks, built new homes on the land, and refurbished 13 other tower blocks. It wound up in 2005.
- Stonebridge HAT in Harlesden, Brent, north-west London, was the last to shut down in 2007.
- Waltham Forest HAT, covering Cathall Road estate in Leytonstone, Oliver Close estate in Leyton, Boundary Road estate in Walthamstow and Chingford Hall Estate in Chingford. Waltham Forest HAT transferred its redeveloped estates to Community-based Housing Association and shut down in April 2002. English Partnerships then demolished four empty tower blocks.
- Tower Hamlets HAT in east London, covering Montieth, Tredegar and Lefevre Walk estates in Bow. Replacement housing is owned by successor body Old Ford Housing Association.
- Castle Vale HAT in Birmingham demolished 32 tower blocks on one of Britain's largest estates. Castle Vale HAT shut down in March 2005.
