11,000 new council homes - Albion Street Civic Centre

Closed 24 Feb 2016

Opened 28 Jan 2016

Feedback expected 2 Mar 2016

Overview

The council is seeking your views on a proposed development at Albion Street Civic Centre.  We are proposing a residential development with retail and services opportunites.  It is estimated that the number of residential units would be around 25 and be of mixed tenure so to include homes for private sale, social rent (affordable housing) and intermediate housing.

To ensure our proposals meet the needs of the area, we are seeking your views on a number of issues such as what you would like to see from the development and what you think of our designs and regeneration plans so far.

Why we are consulting

The council has made an historic commitment to providing 11,000 new council homes by 2043; with 2,500 delivered by 2022.  Central to the delivery of the new homes is the pledge that residents will have a real say in how the new homes are delivered. For council estate residents (where the majority of the new council homes are being delivered), the council reaffirmed this pledge in November 2015 by adopting a Charter of Principles that lays out how the council will engage with residents affected by the development of the new homes. (The Charter can be found here.)

We want to apply that commitment to meaningful engagement to how we consult you on Albion Street Civic Centre by:

  • Giving you the right level of information you need to make up your mind about the benefits and disadvantages of our proposal
  • Giving you more than one way to keep informed and have your say (e.g. this survey is not the only way for you to get involved and give us your views, you can also attend one of the events listed on the right hand side and give us your views in person)
  • Taking your comments/feedback seriously – we will report back on what we’ve heard and what we are changing as a result of it.

What happens next

A further consultation event will be arrranged for Spring. Keep up to date with this by visiting our website where details will be uploaded as and when they are confirmed.
