A picture of Residents invited to view Barne Barton regeneration plans

Residents from the Barne Barton estate in Plymouth are being invited to view exciting plans for a major regeneration of the area by Sanctuary Housing.

Social landlord Sanctuary is launching a consultation process for residents and other local stakeholders who will be able to share their opinions on its multi-million pound investment plans.

Launch of the consultation follows the purchase of the freehold for 120 homes on Talbot Gardens, Savage Gardens and Roope Close by Sanctuary last year.

Sanctuary is now planning to demolish the ten blocks and replace them with a mix of high-quality new housing, transforming the estate.

The first drop-in event is taking place at Tamar View Community Centre, in St Budeaux, on Wednesday 12 February from 1pm – 6.30pm.

Residents will be able to view a range of displays, speak with staff and provide their feedback on design options for the new homes.

John Hanson, Sanctuary’s Head of Regeneration, said: “We are excited to be launching this consultation for the future of the Barne Barton estate.

“Since outlining our investment options for the area last year, residents have played an integral part in shaping the future of their homes. Their feedback is crucial to the success of this project so I would encourage as many to attend this event so we can listen to their views.

“We are also working closely with our partners at the council and Clarion to ensure our regeneration plans complement each other to create a modern, thriving and transformed estate for the entire community.”
