These are the guiding principles that determine how the regeneration scheme will be delivered. At this stage we have put together some outline objectives that will be refined in collaboration with residents:
to achieve a high quality and sustainable residential neighbourhood;
to maximise the number of new homes in response to housing demand, taking into consideration planning constraints and expectations and local social and physical infrastructure;
to meet the housing needs of the residents on the estate;
to achieve the best possible viable balance of tenures for the additional new homes, with an aspiration to secure up to 60% homes for council rent and 40% private sale/private rent;
to harness the process of estate regeneration to deliver positive benefits to the local area; and
to seek to minimise the disruption caused to existing residents during both the decant and construction processes.
