The council recognises the vibrancy and character of Church Street and the importance of involving the local community in any changes in the area.
It is important to us that we work closely with residents, businesses and neighbours as we work on projects in and around Church Street.

Earlier this year we presented you with re-development options for four sites in the Church Street area. The Council has used your views, alongside technical and financial assessments, to make the following decisions:
Church Street Sites A, B and C
Following your feedback, Option 3, partial redevelopment has been selected.
Gayhurst House and 6-12 Lilestone Street
Following your feedback, Option 3, full redevelopment has been selected.
The decisions made about Church Street sites A, B and C, Gayhurst House and 6-12 Lilestone Street were announced in June 2019.

Late last year, we asked you to tell us what matters most when thinking about how we could improve the area of Church Street.
You told us the most important thing we can do is provide new homes in the area. You said this should be genuinely affordable and good quality housing.
