Livin has been working with residents on the Jubilee Fields Estate in Shildon on social regeneration projects since 2017.
As part of the regeneration programme for the Estate the Courts area has been identified for physical regeneration works after discussions with most residents in the Courts identified a need for a transformational approach to their environment. Livin are 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 improved and highway entrances to courts changed. Officers from Livin are in the process of discussing the final designs with residents and decision on taking the programme forward will be made by the Livin Board in March.
