Project Overview
The redevelopment aims to reverse negative socio-economic indicators that have
stigmatised the residents of the Ferrier Estate.
The £1 billion project is made up of 5 phases to be completed over 15-20 years. Requires the
relocation of 1,910 households.
There will be an increase of up to 4,000 homes and it will encourage sustainability by ensuring
a tenure mix including private, affordable and social rented homes.
In addition to the new homes, the project will deliver new social infrastructure, including the
redevelopment of Thomas Tallis School and a new integrated health facility.
Other outcomes include over 300,000 square feet of commercial and retail space
(including a new hotel) and public realm improvements such as a new transport
interchange, 8 hectares of new public open space and investment in Sutcliffe Park.
Employment and training initiatives, including work-placement assistance for rehousing
tenants, are delivered the local authority in partnership with Southern and Berkeley Homes.
