This improvement work will take place between 2019-2026 and includes new kitchens, roofs, fencing and gates, boilers and painting.
This work will take place regardless of any other work to the wider estate. Customer have all received a letter detailing what they will get and when.
Working with partners, we hope to secure funding and planning permission to build new affordable homes and improve the wider estate with better roads, pedestrian and cycle routes, high quality open spaces and landscaping.
We have been working with residents over the last few months on what the estate could look like and have asked you what you like about the estate now, and what you would like to improve.
In December 2019 we will be submitting plans for the first new homes and first phase of the improvements to the estate.
• The investment we need for this is £13 million.
• If we raise the funding needed, this work will take place between 2020-2022.
We will also be working on phase two, once phase one is complete.
Over the past few months we have been working with residents on the estate. We asked you to tell us what you like about it, what’s not so good and what you think we could do to improve it. Thank you to everyone who has given us their feedback!
We have been working with a group of residents from across the estate who have volunteered to be part of our project team. They have called themselves ‘Street Voice’. Working with us, they have been gathering information, raising awareness of the work we are planning with their neighbours, and influencing our plans. Their contribution has been invaluable in helping us to get to know the estate better and understand the views of residents.
You said that the most important thing we can do is improve your home and that any additional investment on the estate is realistic.
We are talking to:
• Our customers
• Our neighbourhood managers
• Trafford Council planning officers
• Adult Services and health care providers
• AMEY, United Utilities and the Environment Agency
• Local councillors
• The emergency services
• Local community groups, including Our Sale West
• Local schools and other public services
• Other landowners and private homeowners
• And many more!
All views will be considered as we progress the details of the plans during November and December 2019.
