The regeneration programme will demolish large sections of the current estate and provide brand new homes for Housing Association rent and shared ownership, as well as for outright sale. Additionally, new roads will be created, a new community facility and shops together with new public open spaces.
A key element of the architect’s masterplan is a major new green park which will run north-south through the heart of the site connecting it with the canal, where a high-value development of apartments, townhouses and community facilities will overlook the water.
The emphasis will be on traditional streets and houses and the existing street pattern will be retained to ensure a sense of continuity between old and new.
The project is due for completion in 2025.
