Local people are being invited to give their views on the designs for the latest phases of new homes in the Gascoigne neighbourhood.

The plans, developed by the Council’s regeneration organisation, Be First, set out ideas for more than 440 top quality new homes set in an attractive green landscape.

They focus on three areas.

  • The first is for over 90 new homes and a community centre on the corner of Ripple Road and St Pauls Road, opposite Lidl and close to the town centre.
  • There are also plans for the area around The Coverdales, behind the Orchard Surgery where a diverse range of around 350 new homes are planned with new tree-lined streets and an open space adjacent to the school.
  • There are also outline designs for the area between Dovehouse Mead and St Edwards Road.

Councillor Cameron Geddes, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Social Housing, said: “We have drawn up some initial ideas for each of these areas, and we expect to submit a planning application for The Coverdales and for Ripple Corner in the summer. But before we do, we’d like residents to share their views.

“We have set up a website and produced a video to explain our thinking, but we are consulting very early in the process to make sure that what local people say about them can really influence the designs and layout of these exciting new homes.”

The website, which provides a range of information about the project, and including a survey and ideas platform, is at https://yourcall.befirst.london/gascoigne-coverdales
