Redevelopment proposal goes to consultation
Havering Council has identified Queen Street sheltered housing scheme for closure and possible demolition and redevelopment.
Regeneration Programme Director, Neil Stubbings, has held meetings with tenants and leaseholders to explain the proposals.
During summer 2016, Sheltered Housing Team Leader, Sharon Nunn, and Queen Street Scheme Officer, Denise Smith and Lisa Matthews will be holding meetings with each individual resident to identify their individual needs to help to relocate them to suitable alternative accommodation. At the meetings family members or friends are welcome to attend if the resident wishes.
Consultation will continue as proposals are prepared so tenants and leaseholders can influence the final design of the new estate.
Most of the 28 tenants have now moved from this site and the properties will be sued as an extension of the Queen Street Villas hostel to reduce the number of people in bed and breakfast and other unsuitable temporary accommodation.
These residents will be on temporary licenses and will be rehoused before demolition work begins in late 2018.
