Tenants have their say on the redevelopment

23 Apr 2015

Want to hear what our tenants have to say about the redevelopment?

You can watch their videos which have now been uploaded onto the 'Tenants Views' page here.

Anne McLean and Alison Molly

Anne and Alison have lived on the Sutton Estate for almost 19 years. Due to the age of their properties, which were originally built over 100 years ago, both Anne and Alison live in cramped flats, unfit for modern living needs. They explain why the lack of space is such a big issue for their families, and how the redevelopment of the Estate will not just change their lives, but also the lives of future generations of tenants on the Sutton Estate.


Danny Griffiths

Danny’s family have lived on the Sutton Estate since 1919. He talks to us about why he feels the redevelopment of the Estate is an absolute necessity, pointing to the poor layout of the properties, the small rooms, the lack of natural light and the poor insulation in many of the flats. He also explains why a delay in the process will increase uncertainty and anxiety amongst those living on the Estate.


Ted Kinopka

79-year old Ted Kinopka has lived on the Sutton Estate for over 10 years. He shows us around his home and explains why he supports the planned redevelopment of the Estate. It will provide Ted with a well-designed, modern and spacious flat as well as creating new communal gardens and a purpose-built community centre.
