The regeneration of the CRE gives us the opportunity to provide high quality homes for the residents currently living on the estate and to build the new homes that Kingston needs.
The regeneration will create long term benefits for people living in the area, providing new community buildings and open spaces, and creating new jobs and training opportunities.
We are in the process of procuring a joint venture development partner and will be speaking to residents about their needs and how they can influence the process.
The three shortlisted bidders are Countryside Properties, the Pinnacle Group, and Places for People.
The decision on who will be chosen to be the Joint Venture partner will be made by October 2018.
Housing Needs Survey - the outcome of the survey will be used to determine future decisions, particularly with regard to property types, phasing of the programme and specialist needs. Residents had the opportunity to state their aspirations for the regeneration and how they'd like to be involved.
Decant policies - the consultation has now closed. Following a community-call in, the full Council meeting on 18 October 2017 set up a councillor's Task and Finish Group which looked at the appeals process.
