About the Winstanley and York Road phasing plan

The Winstanley and York Road Join Venture (JV) is comprised of Taylor Wimpey and the Council’s Regeneration Team. Together the JV has been working hard on the rehousing plan for residents of the two estates, ensuring the plan is realistic and deliverable.

The most important aspect to the team has been to ensure that we will meet the commitments previously made to residents, including:

  • One move into a new home
  • A new home which meets your household’s needs at the time of your assessment
  • A personal interview with your allocated case officer to understand and allow for any additional needs which your family may have, such as wider doors for wheelchair use or a ‘wet-room’ style bathroom
  • Residents’ choice, including flooring, wall paint colours, kitchen cabinets.

The phasing plan details how we expect to deliver the scheme, which includes both the construction of your new home and the demolition of your old. There are a number of factors which could impact our plans over the years, such as the planning process or the need to reach agreements with owners who do not wish to stay in the scheme. Our commitment is that we will keep you updated throughout, and make sure residents are aware as soon as possible if any changes take place.

All properties built in the scheme will meet lifetime homes standards for accessibility. All the social rent replacement homes identified for wheelchair users will be fully accessible. This is in addition to meeting individual residents’ accessibility needs within non-wheelchair units, as identified by their housing needs surveys and occupational therapy assessments.

The JV team are committed to ensuring that residents can enjoy their new homes and neighbourhood as soon as possible. It is possible that unallocated homes in blocks may become available, creating opportunities for some residents in later phases to move into their new home earlier than planned. We will ensure that residents are contacted should suitable opportunities for earlier moves arise.
