Our proposals for new homes and estate improvements on Redbrick estate are:

  • Providing new high quality homes for local residents. Please see our local lettings policy for eligibility. 55 new homes, of which 39 will be social rent, are proposed to be built over three sites on the Redbrick Estate
  • Making the estate more secure and deterring anti-social behaviour
  • Substantial landscaping works to the perimeter boundary wall, new entrances and  estate paving to make these areas more attractive
  • Creation of a new central courtyard area to replace the derelict health centre building at the Bath Street end    
  • Consolidating the parking spaces and the garages
  • A more visible community centre on Old Street to provide a flexible range of spaces allowing multi use during the day

The last newsletter (February 2015) details the proposals and the feedback received from residents since October 2014. A copy can be downloaded under Related Documents at the bottom of this page.
