New Homes at Tent Street 
Invitation to update event - Thursday 19 January 2017

The council carried out a number of consultation events in July/August 2016, to show residents its proposals to develop new affordable homes on a piece of under used land at the western end of Tent Street.

Having heard resident’s views over the summer at the three events, as well as additional feedback through a large number of written representations, the Council has reviewed the designs,

The council would therefore like to invite you to an update event for the scheme.

The event will be held on
