I received a residents' survey in the post today about council housing redevelopment (the plan to build 11,000 new homes in the next 30 years). It relates to this webpage here
The six "pledges" covered in the survey are full of "reassurances" about consulting with residents before and during any work. Eg: "Any tenant or leaseholder wanting to stay in an area where development takes place will be offered options to do so."
Although the long term plan has already been announced, the questionnaire is rather menacing as it seems to anticipate compulsory purchases.
Does anyone know any more about this? Did the survey go out to everyone in a council property? Are there any details published about what proportion of new homes will come from demolishing or radically changing existing sites?
Also ironically the phone number given for the Community Engagement team is wrong, and that team has no phone number on their web page!
