Lower Falinge Community Workshop: Thursday 7th February

We are holding a community workshop on Thursday 7th February from 4pm until 7pm at the Lower Falinge Community Base (238 Newstead) to discuss with residents what investment they would like to see in retained homes at Lower Falinge.

RBH has already invested in new front doors and windows for the retained homes in Lower Falinge, and we recently visited every home in a retained block to have a discussion with residents about what other investment and improvements they would like to see in these homes.

We want to make sure that everyone has the chance to be involved in this discussion too, so we’re holding a workshop to give everyone the chance to share their views on how we can develop these ideas further.

Don’t worry if you can’t make the workshop, information will also be available on this website and on our dedicated Facebook Group.

Improving our retained homes at Lower Falinge

This week RBH colleagues have been in Lower Falinge, speaking to residents who live in the nine blocks which we’ll be retaining as part of the regeneration proposals. We’ve already invested in new front doors and windows for these homes, and this week we’ve started a discussion with residents about what investment and improvements we could make in the retained blocks.

Over the course of the week, we’ve called on every RBH tenant in these nine blocks, and we’re very grateful for the time of all those who we spoke to on the doorstep. Those residents who were not in, or busy, when we called will have the opportunity to make a new appointment.

We want to make sure that the rest of the community are involved in this discussion too, and so we’ll be holding a further resident workshop in early February to give everyone the chance to share their views and give them input on how we can develop our proposals further. More information about this workshop will be available shortly – please keep an eye out!

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by e-mail to towncentre.regen@rbh.org.uk, or by attending our regular drop-in sessions at Lower Falinge Housing Office from 10am until 12 noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Feedback from the December Residents’ Deal workshops on community facilities

Thank you to all the local residents who came along to our December workshops, which were about how best to deliver community facilities and community activities in Lower Falinge and College Bank.

These comprised two open sessions with our independent advisor Helen; as with the November workshops, we held one session during the day and a second session in the evening.
