Why have I been served with an Initial Demolition Notice on my home before we have completed consultation on the plans?

As a tenant you may have the Right to Buy your home and some people around Brookfield Close and Courage Court have already completed this and now own their home. If the Council is to consider the regeneration of the area in future then it is required by the Housing Act to inform you of this before it can restrict further Council house sales. It needs to do this since selling more homes might make the process of regeneration more complicated but also makes the circumstances clear to those who might want to make an application. The Council does this by serving an Initial Demolition Notice. This does not automatically mean that your home is going to be demolished just that the Council has plans, which subject to consultation and planning, might mean demolition in the future.
