It will be possible for some council tenants to stay in their existing homes until their new homes is ready. We are aiming for older and more vulnerable residents to be able to do this as a priority where possible. Some residents will need to move from the site during construction, and the council’s housing team will work with individual households to find suitable accommodation elsewhere in Council homes in the Borough. All Council tenants will have a right to return to a new home on the site once completed if they’d like to.
Homeowners will move from the site as arrangements to buy their homes are completed. There will be some houses for sale on the site at the end of the construction and the Council will discuss the possibility of homeowners being able to return should they wish.
