Increase in new Council homes as Nightingale transformation moves a step closer

Residents at Nightingale have made it very clear that they are keen for the Council to get on with delivering the ambitious plans to build the much needed new Council homes for their estate.

At long last delivery is progressing, with investment into communal facilities that includes new play equipment, outdoor gym facilities and landscaping at Olympus Green and a new purpose designed temporary community centre are all set to come forward. As agreed with residents a new permanent community centre will be built as part of a future phase of the Nightingale project.

Meanwhile the plans for the new homes have been redesigned so that the first 70 new homes will all be Council homes for social rent and all will be prioritised for Nightingale residents whose current home doesn’t meet their needs.
