Three sections - 'Council Tax' , 'Benefits and support' and 'Bins and recycling'- are now available on our beta site. Please give them a try and tell us what you think. We'll be adding more shortly.
Background to the regeneration
The cabinet approved in outline the continuing regeneration of the Elmington estate in 2009. This new strategy has three strands:
- The selection of a registered social landlord to develop new homes on the two empty sites on either side of Edmund Street. Notting Hill Housing Group has been selected and new homes will be ready by October 2014.
- Works to Proctor House, Brisbane Street, Flatman House, Drayton and Langland house - these works are now completed.
- The redevelopment of 4 sites known as site C (Harris Street office) and sites D E G which are the low rise buildings at Benhill Road, Houseman Way, Lomond Grove, Flecker House and Broome Way. Rehousing of tenants and leasehold buy backs is underway, and we have appointed Family Mosaic to develop new homes on the sites.
We worked closely with residents through the Elmington resident steering group to develop a detailed redevelopment programme and consulted with residents on issues such as rehousing for affected residents.
The Elmington Resident Steering Group was disbanded in March 2013 due to low turnout as many of its key members had been rehoused. We have continued consultation through the 2 tenants and residents associations on the estate. You can find out more about the Elmington Resident Steering Group (RSG).
