Q. What are the long term plans?

Over the next three years of the programme, we will:

  • build more than 1650 new homes
  • demolish around 460 former houses together with former commercial premises
  • refurbish a further 570 existing homes 

A lot of the new housing will be built close to existing neighbourhoods, so that communities can stay together. Wherever possible, we will ‘build first, demolish later’, so that residents affected by clearance get the opportunity to move into new, high quality homes near where they already live.

Our plans will also involve breathing new life into old, low value industrial land, by building new, high quality developments on these sites.
