Southwick Estate Consultation Round Four Events
Released: Monday, 14 November 2022
Further consultation events on the future of Southwick Estate are taking place throughout November after residents had their say on the original options.
The potential plans for the estate have been updated following feedback from residents at a series of consultation events which started in July 2021.
Starting on Tuesday 15th November 2022, new consultation sessions will be held around the estate so that residents can consider the Council's revised options. Anyone can turn up and comment on the proposals, which also feature more detail than previous versions.
- Tuesday 15th November, at Rock Close, 2pm to 5pm
- Wednesday 23rd November, at Watling Court, 10am to 1pm
- Monday 28th November, at Grange Court, 3pm to 6pm
- Saturday 3rd December, at Harbour Court, 11am to 1pm
After the event detailed proposals will go live on the Southwick Estate website, along with forms where you can have your say.
The Southwick Estate needs a lot of work to bring it up to modern housing standards. Residents have been consulted to find out what they like and dislike about the estate as well as their priorities for the future. This showed that people liked the open spaces and community spirit, for example, but that many residents are unhappy with the current condition of their properties.
Four options were developed, including repairs and refurbishment of the current housing stock, partial refurbishment with some new homes, and redevelopment of the estate.
We have focused on repairs and refurbishment or full redevelopment, based on the feedback from the last consultation event held in the summer. However, all four options are still on the table and you will have an opportunity to identify your priorities.
Based on your feedback, the project team will make a recommendation to the Council and you will be notified in early January. The exact timeline and process will be defined by the residents' choice.
The planned investment in the Southwick Estate is part of the commitment by Adur Homes to improve its housing stock and increase the number of available properties, to try to reduce the housing waiting list.
The Southwick Estate website is being updated, to include minutes from the Residents' Working Group and full details of the revised options. For more information, please visit:
