11,000 new council homes - Flaxyards & Sumnner House

Closed 6 May 2016

Opened 24 Mar 2016

Feedback expected 9 May 2016


This is the second consultation regarding the Flaxyards and Sumner regeneration, please check the consultation boards below to see how the proposals have changed as a response to the feedback given last time round.

The council is seeking your views on a proposed development at Flaxyards & Sumner House. We are proposing a residential development with green and commercial spaces.  It is estimated that the number of residential units would be around 330 and be of mixed tenure so to include homes for private sale, intermediate housing (eg. shared ownership, key worker and discounted market rent homes) and social rent (affordable 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. 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 Flaxyards and Sumner House by:

  • Giving you the right level of information you need to make up your mind about the benefits and disadvantages of our proposal
  • 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 take place in the April once the responses and feedback from this online conusltation has been collated and analysed.
