we're improving the sale west estate

Over the next few years we're investing £7.2 million improving customer’s homes.

This improvement work will take place between 2019-2026 and includes new kitchens, roofs, fencing and gates, boilers and painting.

This work will take place regardless of any other work to the wider estate. Customer have all received a letter detailing what they will get and when. 

We are also building new homes and improving the wider estate.

We have secured funding and planning permission for the first phase, building new affordable homes and improve the wider estate with better roads, pedestrian and cycle routes, high quality open spaces and landscaping.

We have been working with residents on what the estate could look like and have asked you what you like about the estate now, and what you would like to improve.

This work will take place between 2020-2022. We will also be working on phase two, once phase one is complete.

Listening to you

Over the past few months we have been working with residents on the estate. We asked you to tell us what you like about it, what’s not so good and what you think we could do to improve it. Thank you to everyone who has given us their feedback!

We have been working with a group of residents from across the estate who have volunteered to be part of our project team. They have called themselves ‘Street Voice’. Working with us, they have been gathering information, raising awareness of the work we are planning with their neighbours, and influencing our plans. Their contribution has been invaluable in helping us to get to know the estate better and understand the views of residents.
