Wyken and Spon End
In July 2019 we announced our first major regeneration project as Citizen would be the transformation of two communities in Wyken and Spon End.
We asked our customers what they thought about where they live and they told us about a number of issues, including anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping and noise nuisance. They also said they would like to see improvements to their homes.
We want to do something about this and that’s why we’ve announced a major project which will see £33 million invested in Wyken and Spon End over the next five years.
In Wyken we’ll be demolishing Vincent Wyles House and transforming William Malcolm House; both of which are tower blocks. We’ll also be building 93 new homes on the space we create by demolishing Vincent Wyles House.
In Spon End we’ll be making significant improvements to three blocks – Kerry House, Milestone House and Trafalgar House and exploring opportunities to build new affordable homes.
We will appoint a developer partner for this major project in Summer 2020 and work will happen over the next five years.
