we're improving the sale west estate and the homes there

We want Sale West to be a great place to live! 

We have a multi-million pound investment programme planned for the area. Over the next few years we will be improving the existing homes we own on the estate. We are also looking to build new homes and improve the wider estate.

We are working with residents to develop a plan that we will be submitting for planning permission later this year.  

we want to hear from residents

We are committed to involving residents in the decisions we make and there are lots of ways to get involved.

Come along to one of our resident meetings to review the area you live in and tell us what you would like to see improved. Every meeting will begin at the Sale West community centre before we take a look around the area with residents. If you can't make the meetings but would like to review your area with us, please contact Sam Cooper on 07887429540.

You can also share your views and comments using the form below, and we will be opening an office at the Sale West Community Centre where you will be able to pop in to talk to us and discuss the plans.

what improvements will residents get? 

We are working on an improvement plan which will include all the homes we own and manage on the estate. This work will be done regardless of any improvements to the wider estate and has been budgeted for in our 30-year business plan.

We are working on a detailed programme of work for the next five years which we hope to share with residents in September. This will include the following, unless they are in good working order:

  • Roof
  • Kitchen
  • Fencing
  • Painting
  • Boiler
  • Heating
  • Electrics
  • Doors (front and back)
  • Windows
  • Pointing and cladding
  • Paths
  • Bathrooms

will residents get a choice? 

We hope to offer a choice for certain improvements i.e. kitchen cupboard doors and worktops. But other elements such as windows will be specified so they are in keeping with the surrounding area. We will let residents know what they will be able to choose when we confirm the program.

when will the work start? 

The improvement work to the existing homes may start as early as Autumn 2019. The work to the wider estate and building any new homes will be subject to a planning application. This is likely to start in 2020 and will take several years to complete.

will there be any new homes built? 

We hope to build new homes for both social and affordable rent. Any new homes would be let through our usual application process. Click hereWe also hope to build new homes for sale, these will be advertised on this website along with details of how to buy one.

will there be any new community facilities? 

We are supporting Our Sale West in looking for a premise for a new community centre.

how much is this work going to cost? 

We are investing £40million in improving the existing homes on the estate between 2019- 2050. We won’t know exactly how much building any new homes and improving the wider estate will cost until the plans have been approved. However, we estimate that this will be in the region of £35 - £45million.
