Proposed plans - redevelopment of homes JBP & Westmill Road
We recently invited local residents to two community information events to see proposed plans for the development of properties 2 to 136 John Barker Place (opposite the new development) and 53 to 75 Westmill Road (odd numbers only). Proposed plans also include the redevelopment of the site of the Westmill Lawns retirement living scheme.
Investing in homes
At settle, our first priority is to provide homes that are safe and comfortable for our residents to live in. We’re committed to investing in the neighbourhoods in which we work to ensure they are good places to live in, where residents can feel proud of where they live, and we help improve the life outcomes for those living there.
We have been in contact with the residents of these properties and outlined the three main areas driving the need for investment to:
- Ensure that we continue meeting the Decent Homes standard
- Provide energy-efficient homes that meet government targets for net-zero carbon
- Invest in communal spaces to deliver improvements that we have identified are needed to the shared areas in and around these buildings.
With the amount of work involved, the disruption it would bring, and the level of financial investment required which would result in properties that still have limitations, for example still lacking lifts - settle are proposing the best option for residents is to provide new homes on the same site and to carry out a phased building programme similar to the new homes and shops on John Barker Place.
If you have any questions or would like to make suggestions regarding the redevelopment, please send us an email and a member of our team will respond or call us on 0330 343 0016.
