Consultation: Closed Draft Local Lettings Plan for Winstanley and York Road Development

Secure tenants have been hand delivered the latest development phasing plan and the draft local lettings plan for the Winstanley and York Road Regeneration scheme. The phasing plan has been updated from the one which was issued in July 2018. Under Section 105 of the Housing Act 1985 the Council has a legal obligation to consult with our secure tenants on matters of housing management which are likely to substantially affect them. The draft local lettings plan provides information regarding how priority is determined between applicants in the allocation of the new accommodation.

There are three key changes in the updated development phasing plan,and they are:

  • Due to timing of the planning process the scheme is anticipated to start on site next year with Block 5 delivering the first new homes on site
  • There has been some delay with the proposed offsites at Shuttleworth Road and Gideon Road which are now due to deliver new homes for the residents of Pennethorne House in Autumn 2021
  • Due to the timings of the planning application delays and the offsites, blocks 6 and 7 are now planned to deliver in similar time frames, at the end of 2024. This brings forward the delivery of block 7 for the residents of Arthur Newton and Holcroft Houses’

If you are a secure tenant and have any comments regarding the draft local lettings plan, send them to the Council:

  • In the enclosed return envelope provided in the recent delivery pack or
  • Contact your case officer as indicated on your letter:

Closing date

The closing date for the consultation is Monday 31 August 2020. All comments received by this date will be considered by the Council before the Local Lettings Plan is finalised.

If you have any other queries regarding the redevelopment scheme please contact your case officer on the details above.

Due to COVID-19, the Regeneration office is currently closed however the email box and the answerphone service is monitored multiple times a day and your case officer will get back to you. If you wish to write to us, we have provided a return envelope for this purpose. Due to postal delay and out of office working please note this may result in a slower response time from the team.
