After a long and extensive period of consultation we are now in a position to confirm the proposal which will be put forward to the 9th November Council Cabinet meeting. This proposal would see:
  • The partial redevelopment of Knight’s Walk;
  • The following homes would be demolished and replaced: 5a - f, 7, 9, 11a - f, 13, 15, 17 and 19 Knight's Walk;
  • The following homes would be retained: 1, 2, 3 Kempsford Road, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 16, 18 and 20 Knight's Walk;
  • Subject to planning, a total of 82 new homes would be built with 64 additional homes, of which at least 25 will be at Council level rents.

After the Cabinet meeting on the 9th we will be in touch again with the outcome of that meeting along with information on what will be happening as a consequence. To provide as much certainty as possible at this stage we have put together an indicative timeline of what we expect to happen if the Council Cabinet agrees to these proposals.

• Appointment of Development Manager by December 2015
• Masterplanning through to Summer 2016
• Confirm masterplan and business plan September 2016
• Planning application December 2016
• Start building Summer 2017

This means we do not expect any building work to start until the Summer of the 2017. Depending on the outcome of the 9th November Cabinet meeting we will be developing a further engagement programme for the project.

Thank you for taking part in the discussions to date.

Yours sincerely,

Lesley Johnson
