The council is looking closely at the future of the Avondale Drive Estate to find ways to provide safe and secure housing for its residents.
Since the summer, we have been consulting residents to better understand how they feel about their home and living on the estate. Resident feedback highlighted a range of good and bad things about the homes and estate, and showed clear support for the council to consider, with residents, how the estate might change if it were to be demolished and rebuilt.
This webpage has been set up to keep people informed and provide access to information about the consultation process.
We would like to reassure you that no decision on the future of the Avondale Drive Estate has been made and that any decision will only be made after residents have had the opportunity to vote for or against the regeneration proposals in Spring 2021.
As part of the consultation process, residents have been invited to join a Residents Steering Group (RSG) for the estate. The RSG first met in November and will work closely with the council to shape the ongoing consultation, act as a sounding board for the design team and develop a Residents Charter. The RSG's first action was to interview and select an Independent Tenants and Leaseholders Advisor.
Any resident living on Avondale Drive Estate can join the RSG. Please do get in touch with us via the details below if you would like to join.
In December 2020, a consultation booklet was delivered to all homes on the estate. This document explained the process, provided key contact details and presented some initial thoughts about how a new estate might look and be designed to resolve some of the key issues residents face.
