Ballot date announced |
In January 2020, the Council announced the date of the ballot. Between 24 February – 18 March 2020, residents will vote to decide whether the estate should be regenerated to deliver new high-quality, ‘greener’ homes that will take us into the future. Click here

3rd Public Exhibition |
An information event for residents to find out everything they need to know about The Landlord Offer and The Ballot will take place on Saturday 8 February (12 – 4 pm) and Monday 10 February (4 – 8 pm) 2020. Drawings, models, and pictures are available.
Landlord Offer |
A document called the ‘Landlord Offer’ will be delivered to everyone who is eligible to vote in the ballot. It will include the final designs and plans for the estate, the estimated numbers of new homes and the kind of homes they will be. There will also be details about the offer for social rent council tenants, freeholders and leaseholders, qualifying housing association residents, residents in temporary accommodation (TA), and tenants renting from a private landlord. The information and images in the Landlord Offer are the designs that eligible residents will be asked to consider when voting in the Residents’ Ballot.
In early 2020, all eligible voters can vote in the regeneration ballot. We will explain how residents can register their vote before the start of the ballot.
The ballot will be run independently by Civica Election Services (CES), (formerly known as Electoral Reform Society).
What happens after the ballot | Once the result of the ballot is announced, we will also let you know the outcome and next steps for all residents of Cambridge Road Estate.
If there is a majority ‘YES’ vote from residents, there will be planning applications and further discussions with residents.
Planning permission in 2020 will mean that building should start in 2021. We are then aiming to have the first homes ready for moves in 2023.
Keeping you involved |
If there is a majority ‘YES’ vote from residents, we’ll continue to hold engagement activities and drop-in sessions for you. We will also continue our newsletter and website updates to share the latest information on what is happening.
