The move follows a consultation programme which has been undertaken over the past year. Rydon and housing provider A2Dominion are seeking outline planning permission for the regeneration project master plan. An application for full planning permission for the first phase of the redevelopment is also being submitted.
The proposed project includes the phased demolition of 464 existing homes to make way for new properties designed by Conran & Partners for affordable rent, shared ownership and outright sale. The proposed regeneration programme also includes new community buildings and facilities.
Weekly drop-in surgeries have been launched to help keep residents, neighbours and other stakeholders up-to-date with the proposed regeneration of the estate.
