These case studies highlight the key role that housing associations play in delivering sustainable change and a lasting legacy through regeneration in struggling neighbourhoods.
Goscote Lane – whg
In Walsall, housing association whg, alongside Walsall Council and the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership, have come together to transform the area around the former Goscote Lane Corridor. The regeneration will deliver around 700 new homes, improvements to 300 existing homes and new green spaces as well as community investment projects aimed at improving the health of residents and their training and job prospects.
Kersey Crescent – Sovereign Housing Association
At Kersey Crescent in Newbury, homes were becoming inefficient to heat, uneconomic to repair, and had a lack of quality, safe outdoor space. Sovereign has replaced the properties with 78 new homes as part of a new mixed community – Castle View – designed to better meet housing demand in the local area, including much-needed opportunities for affordable home ownership and properties for social rent.
