Gascoigne estate - eastern side redevelopment

Work is underway to redevelop the eastern side of the Gascoigne Estate.

The work is taking place in three phases. The first phase of 421 new homes, known as Weavers Quarter, is now complete and has seen large swathes of the old estate demolished and replaced by quality new flats and maisonettes, and Greatfields school. We have appointed architects for phase two. They will make a planning application for 500 new homes at the Northern end of the site.

Phase two and three will deliver a further 1,160 new homes in a mix of affordable rents, shared ownership and for sale.

By 2024 a total of more than 1,575 new homes will be built together with:

  • a new medical centre
  • flexible commercial floorspace
  • an energy centre
  • public open spaces
  • a new primary school
  • a secondary school
  • a community centre
  • retail space
  • play areas for children

Compulsory Purchase Orders and Demolition Orders have been issued for a number of the blocks on the estate.
