In our latest newsletter, we let you know that we spent a lot of time during lockdown planning how we can keep consulting with you while protecting our customers and colleagues and following government guidelines.
We’re pleased to say that, in partnership with the social enterprise PLACED, we’ve launched our new digital engagement hub! This online hub gives you several different ways to share your views on the regeneration project, from adding your thoughts to the ideas wall to adding comments on the interactive map of the estate.
Although we’re very excited to share this hub with you, we will still continue with other methods of consultation. We have posted out printed materials which include everything that’s on our engagement hub, so you’re able to fill this out by hand and send it back to us. We’ll also be continuing with our one on one conversations, either by phone or, government guidance allowing, in a socially distanced way.
While the hub is a great way to easily share your ideas, we also want to have a conversation with you about our plans. So, PLACED will be running online Zoom workshops, with each workshop focusing on a different topic, from communal and green spaces, to the new homes and improvements to existing ones.
The printed pack you have received through the post provides clear instructions for using the digital engagement hub, and on how to join the Zoom workshops.
Please remember that we’re still here for you, and Patrick will be happy to help however he can.
If you have any questions on the consultation, or if you’d like to speak to us about something else, you can fill out our web form, or call us on 0330 355 1000.
Contact Patrick on Patrick.Beesley@onemanchester.co.uk or phone 0161 230 1051.
The regeneration involves building new homes for residents who are affected by demolition along with a number of additional new homes with tenures such as shared ownership, whilst making improvements to the remaining homes to help make them more energy efficient and enhance the external appearance.
We will also look to improve the local amenities around the estate along with alleyways and open spaces.
Our proposals still have a long way to go and we will be continuing to discuss and shape them with the local community.
One Manchester places high importance on creating employment opportunities for local people and delivering healthy happy communities and making this area a great place to live.
Should you wish to speak to a member of the Grey Mare Lane Estate Team, below are the details you need.
This page will be continually updated to ensure all residents and stakeholders remain informed about the progress of the regeneration project.
One Manchester is not just about the bricks and mortar, we also work hard to build strong communities and help the people in them to develop and thrive. This is why we were recently delighted to support one of our Beswick residents, by helping her find work after the lockdown had made things difficult for her.
