Livin has been working with residents on the Jubilee Fields Estate in Shildon on a social regeneration programme since 2017.
In addition to the social programme of works a large number of residents in the Courts area of the estate identified a need for a change to their environment. Livin have always been passionate about creating communities where people want to live and homes which are modern and meet the needs of residents so design and development work commenced in late 2017 with residents feeding into the whole process.
The works proposed will see improvements to house frontages including rendering, windows and doors, gardens and fencing; it will also see open spaces and parking improved and the highway entrances to the courts changed. Officers from Livin are in the process of discussing the final designs with residents and landlords. The decision on taking the programme forward will be made by the Livin Board in May 2019.
