Tintagel Close, Keynsham

 

 

Tintagel Close in Keynsham is a block of 44 three-bedroom maisonettes built in the 1960s. Curo is proposing to demolish and redevelop the estate to provide modern and energy efficient affordable homes for social rent and shared ownership in a well-designed scheme that is integrated and connected with the wider neighbourhood.

Location

Why redevelop Tintagel Close?

We've been working with residents at Tintagel Close since 2018 to understand the work and investment that would be needed to upgrade these homes and make sure they're fit for the future.

Initially we believed that it would be possible to refurbish the building while residents remained in their homes. However, following more detailed surveys, as well as new government legislation on fire and building safety and energy efficiency, we have re-evaluated the project.

Having carefully considered all the facts, including feedback from residents at Tintagel Close, our Board decided to approve the recommendation to demolish the building and redevelop the site.

We believe the demolition and redevelopment of Tintagel Close is the most viable solution through which we can provide sustainable homes for the long term. We want to create a safe and attractive neighbourhood that fits in with existing homes and can improve the wider area and benefit the local community.

Our redevelopment proposals will be guided by what local residents tell us and our overall objective to provide a modern, integrated estate with new affordable housing (social rent and shared ownership) for the local community.

To achieve this, we need to consider building both on the existing footprint of Tintagel Close, as well as on some of the nearby grassed area (see image below). This would enable us to provide much-needed high-quality affordable homes for people with different needs while making sure we deliver the best possible scheme design.

How are you supporting Tintagel Close residents?

We've been consulting with residents at every stage of the project and since autumn 2021 we've been helping them to find and move to new homes in the area with practical and financial support. You can find out more about this here.

So far, half of the families at Tintagel Close have moved (May 2022) and we continue to support the remaining residents to find suitable properties in the areas they want.

Consultation

As this work is progressing, we’re also starting to consider what the future might look like for the Tintagel Close estate. Our aim is to provide new, high-quality affordable homes for social rent and shared ownership that are modern and energy efficient.

Between 23 May - 5 June 2022 we ran our first 'in principle' consultation, asking local residents to fill in our short online survey and help us shape the plans and set the priorities for a potential new development.

What happens next?

Your feedback will help us to design proposals for the site over the next few months. We’ll share these plans with the local community later in the year, when you’ll be able to comment on the specifics of the project, including the design of the homes, development layout and other details such as parking arrangements.

We will keep local residents up to date with our progress, including via this web page.
