Earlier this year, the council and St Raphael’s residents jointly appointed Public Participation Consultation and Research (PPCR) as Independent Advisor for the St Raphael’s project.

Quick facts about PPCR:

  • Although paid for by the Council, PPCR works independently. The advice provided to residents, business and homeowners is based on policy and best practice
  • Long and successful record of helping organisations involve local people in decisions that affect their quality of life - making their homes and communities better places to live.

PPCR will hold training sessions for the whole community at Henderson House during summer 2019:

Tenant/Resident/Stakeholder Board

PPCR are setting up a Tenant/Resident/Stakeholder Board. The Board will represent residents and local stakeholders, and make sure that local people are involved in conversations and decisions along the process to create options for the future of estate. Elections for Board representatives will take place in June 2019.
