On Tuesday the 6th of November, Steve Inkpen from East End Homes met to discuss issues with regards to the proposed planning application on the Eric and Treby Estate. Below is a summary of our discussion and agreed action points:
Timetable of Planning and Construction of new units
The application is due to go to committee early next year, 2019. With construction starting 6 months later.
Proposed New Community Pop Up Centre and Space
As per residents walkabout, East End Homes are happy to proceed with the new community space. And will contact contact person for residents to discuss details.
Local People getting priority for the new units
All units will be for rent, with most of the new units at a higher rent than current social rents. We discussed in light of the new approach a local letting, giving priority to local residents on the housing waiting list register. East End Homes will explore the policy and get back.
Improvements to existing housing stock on Eric and Treby Estate
We discussed ongoing works and issues with existing stock on the Eric and Treby Estate. East End Homes have started some remedial works, and will update me with further developments.
