We plan to redevelop The Mannings to build new, high quality homes. We appointed PCKO Architects to create a proposal for the new development.
The Mannings was built in 1982 by Martlet Housing Association. Following an independent survey in 2015 it was found that the building has deteriorated due to age and weather. This is causing significant heat loss and concerns with damp and condensation. The mechanical and electrical services have also come to the end of their life expectancy.
We've been engaging with our customers to understand and recognise their housing needs, housing options and desires. We've created a frequently asked questions newsletter to provide information to our customers on The Mannings about their options and moving home.
We're created a moving home information sheet to help you prepare for your move. We’ve include a checklist of some of the people you’ll need to contact to let them know your new address.
For more information about registering with Adur and Worthing Council's Housing Register you can access their website.
Shaping our proposal through meaningful consultation
Redeveloping the estate will allow us to build new, quality homes of different sizes to meet the needs of people living in Shoreham and the local area. The new homes will be accessible to people with mobility restrictions and will all have private outdoor space.
The new homes will all be affordable with a mix of social rent and shared ownership tenures. We want to help more people take their first steps to buy their own homes, and we believe that shared ownership offers a good opportunity for those on medium incomes to do so. We want to create diverse, mixed tenure communities for everyone to live.
We believe that a new development will bring value to the community and we want you to help shape our ideas and identify options which would work best within the local area. We want to fully understand and recognise better our customers' needs and concerns and create a proposal that is inclusive for everyone.
Join our consultation and have your say
We want everyone to be meaningfully involved in our consultation and it's important for us to listen and understand your thoughts, opinions and ideas to develop a scheme for everyone.
We’re engaging and consulting with our residents and the local community; we've held surgeries and meetings with our residents since August 2018. We've held three resident consultation events and an information event for the local neighbourhood in June 2019. You can view our consultation material from our information event, below:
We're committed to providing new, high quality homes to meet our existing customers' needs and we'll offer them the right to return, as well as providing them with advice and support on their housing options.
We recognise that our customers want to remain in Shoreham and we fully understand and appreciate their local connections to the area. We’ve purchased a new development built by a private developer on 67 Brighton Road, which will be offered to our customers. We're committed to enhancing our housing stock in Adur and Worthing and the South Coast, and providing our customers with an exceptional service.
We wish to invite you to view our final plans at our Pre-planning Exhibition on Tuesday 23 July 2019 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at Co-op Community Space, Ham Road, Shoreham-by Sea, BN43 6PA.
Further to our visit to the Artisan at the end of May, we will be holding another development scheme visit to Preston Road, Brighton in early autumn for our residents to see the size, layout and specification of affordable homes. The scheme is located in the Preston Park Conservation Area. The scheme is a mix of refurbishment of 1870s Victorian houses and new build homes with a shared courtyard.
The scheme is similar to our proposal for The Mannings has been built with energy conscious design that uses solar photo-voltaics on the roofs of the mid-rise block and houses to generate electricity.
