This project featured the comprehensive regeneration of a mixed tenure estate to provide 1,000 new and refurbished homes.
The scheme included refurbishment of the existing homes, maintenance works, redevelopment and new build across the estate. The final project saw an improvement on the original design, whilst also reducing the original budget by £4 million. This success is directly related to innovations made through partnering.
The Pollards Hill Estate project was selected by the Housing Forum as a beacon Demonstration Project in its important first year when a quarter of a million pounds had already been saved against the budget. Our dedicated Community Development Team worked closely with the resident's representatives to plan the programme’s success, guide them through the choices available for furnishings and fittings, develop public safety awareness initiatives for children and support local events.
