Residents will be able to see their new homes.
THE second and third phases of a multi-million housing estate redevelopment will be on show to its residents in an exhibition.
People living on the Barham Park Estate in Sudbury will be able to scrutinise the plans for the 335 homes on show.
The residents, who have had a hand at designing the homes, will see images of the 267 properties which are on the estate and the 68 which are on the outskirts.
The homes, which form part of the estate’s five-year regeneration programme, range from one-bedroom flats to large family properties with gardens.
They are expected to be ready by 2015.
Robert Johnson, Brent Council’s project director for Barham Park, said: “People living on the estate have been at the forefront of the regeneration process and they will continue to have an influence through the steering group.
“We will also be gathering their views at the exhibition before the plans are submitted to the council for approval.”
The entire 1970s estate is being re-developed by Notting Hill Housing and Countryside Properties in partnership with Brent Council.
Phase one of the programme started in June last year when residents from 64 old properties were re-located, and 119 properties were built in its place.
The new properties are a mixture of shared ownership, affordable rent and private homes.
The exhibition takes place in Sudbury Baptist Church, District Road, Sudbury on October 21 between 3pm and 8pm.
Residents will be able to talk to designers before plans are submitted to Brent Council’s planning department next month.
