Officers have kept the Secretary of the Tenants & Residents Association informed of progress regarding completion of the building work and have responded to issues as they are raised.  Officers met with the Chair and Secretary of the Tenants & Residents Association in July 2023 to explain why the construction work had not yet been completed.  Following this meeting a letter was sent to members, residents in Howley Walk and those adjacent to the site to reassure them that the Council did not intend to abandon the development. A further email update was provided to the Chair and Secretary on 11 March.


Consultation was carried out with residents and members prior to the original scheme being approved in 2020.  No further consultation has been undertaken as proposals have not changed.
