Better Queensway

The Better Queensway project seeks to regenerate the Queensway area, creating a new residential-led development made up of high quality housing, and a better living environment and place for people to live, socialise and play.

 

In March 2018, the council started a detailed procurement process to attract a partner to deliver the project with them. That process ended in January 2019, with Swan Housing Association being announced as the council’s preferred bidder in February 2019. If approved by the council’s Cabinet, Full Council and Swan’s Board, contracts will be signed in spring 2019 and a joint venture partnership will be formed to collectively deliver the scheme.  Read more about the news on the council’s website.

 

The procurement process followed a public consultation in late 2017 to find out what the community thought about the high-level principles for the development, including details on the transport infrastructure needed to bring the development forward. We would like to thank everybody that attended our public events and provided feedback as part of the consultation.

 

The public consultation demonstrated strong support for the principle of development on the site and for improving the area. A summary of the consultation findings and the full report can be viewed here.
