Housing renewal informed by community consultation

  • Project: Raby Street, All Saints, Wolverhampton
  • Client: All Saints and Blakenhall Community Development
  • Scale: Over 100 new homes

Building on their urban development study, Lathams carried out a housing renewal study. This involved extensive community consultation to establish key drivers for change. Whilst researching individual family housing needs, Lathams based themselves on site each week to answer questions and discuss options.

Proposals were prepared based on a phased programme of work – the key thrust being to facilitate the re-housing of local homeowners within the immediate areas. A range of homes were developed.

A planning and development brief was then prepared to cover the range of regeneration possibilities. This included desired land uses, building height, form and character and provided strategic guidance in relation to access and movement.
