Draft Guiding Principles

Inevitably talk of estate redevelopment can make some residents feel worried about what might happen to their homes and communities. This is why Brent is absolutely committed to being open and honest about the advantages and disadvantages of both options.

Any plan that is developed needs to have residents’ ideas and views at the heart of it – this means we do things with you, working together. With this in mind, the council is circulating a draft set of Guiding Principles to trigger debate and discussion among St Raphael’s Estate residents.

This document sets out in practical terms what existing residents might expect to gain from either of the two options: infill (partial redevelopment/refurbishment) or full redevelopment. In doing so it provides something for residents to discuss and comment on as we work together to agree the future of St Raphael’s Estate.

It should also be made clear that this is not the Landlord Offer. The Landlord Offer will be the formal commitment to residents ahead of any ballot and agreed after the views of residents are fully known and the detailed work on the financial viability of both options is complete.

The 15 Guiding Principles are for St Raphael’s residents to comment on over the coming weeks and months. Let us know what you think by emailing us at straphs@brent.gov.uk or by coming to one of the drop in sessions or next public meeting.
