With over 7,000 homes and student accommodation units planned for the north west fringe of the city, some residents may have concerns and questions about how they will impact their communities and lives, whether that be hopes for the better or fears for the worse.
With schemes including provision of new schools, libraries, healthcare, sports and culture facilities, it is an exciting time to be living in the area, and the council are holding the first of a regular series of opportunities for locals to see what is happening in their area.
Starting with an informal drop-in session allowing you the chance to have a cup of tea with council officers and other developers to chat about the plans, the Forum will then have presentations and a chance for a Q and A.
With plans to run similar events every couple of weeks or so, even if you are unable to make this first forum, you will have plenty of opportunity in future.
This first Forum is taking place on Monday 10th December at Castle Street Methodist Church Hall, with the drop-in session running from 4.00pm - 6.00pm and the presentations and Q and A starting at 6.30pm.
"These new developments will provide a considerable number of homes and should provide a wealth of benefits to our local community," said Mike Pitt, Executive Councillor for Community Development and Health. "The Council is very keen to keep everyone informed as the work progresses. This is the start of a regular series of events open to everyone.
"I urge anyone who has any interest to come along and see what is happening."
