In early 2019, we took a look at our housing stock and decided to investigate various ways of developing new homes. Early drafts of plans for the proposed homes were showcased at this time and consultation with our tenants and the wider community began. The current plans include 2 new blocks of flats situated on the estate, one for General Needs tenants and one for Sheltered Housing tenants, the latter of which would connect to Stonegate Way to provide our Sheltered Housing tenants with a true ‘Sheltered Village’ and provide ease of access to the Marjorie & Arnold Ziff Community Centre.

Below is an update log detailing events following the decision to begin consultation.
