In Lower Falinge, we knew that there are residents who enjoy living there but unfortunately, many people are no longer choosing to move to this neighbourhood.
We wanted to explore how we could change this, and make Lower Falinge a place where people from all generations want to live and are proud to call home.
As well as looking at building new homes of different types and sizes, we are working to improve the open spaces in and around the neighbourhood with better lighting and a larger, safer play area. We want to give residents better parking options and improve the routes in and around the neighbourhood for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles, making it easier to get around. We are also looking at new pedestrian crossing points to St Mary’s Gate, to improve connectivity with the town centre.
In December 2018, we received planning approval for the next phase of development at Lower Falinge. This includes 55 new homes; a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom houses and 1 and 2 bedroom flats, along with public open space, a new play area and a community garden. We are working hard to ensure we begin to deliver the new homes and public space soon.
As we develop the detail of the next phases of development at Lower Falinge we will continue to ensure that we are considering our existing and future residents and to support our residents to have the best opportunities.
