Significant investment has been made in areas such as Blakelaw Park and the development of the new neighbourhood centre linked to the library. However, improvements need to be made to Central Blakelaw’s housing layout to allow Blakelaw’s centre to be revitalised. We will improve pedestrian routes across the central Blakelaw area and provide access to play and green space for residents.
The development of new housing choices with a layout appropriate to the area will increase the sustainability of the neighbourhood, provide opportunities for local people to access housing choices and act as a catalyst for improvements to adjoining estates. The viability of retail outlets will be improved.
