A Design for Life

The Residents’ Steering Group (RSG) is made up of local volunteers, who live on the estate who want to make sure that the new Wornington Green is a great place to live for future generations. Through their newly formed committee, the RSG aims to represent the views of all residents living on Wornington Green.

The RSG played a key role on the interview panel for the Phase 2 architects. They jointly, with Cataylst staff, selected Conran & Partners as the architects for Phase 2.

The RSG has now set up a Design Team so that local people can work with Conran & Partners and help shape the design of Phase 2. The membership of the Design Team consists of RSG Committee members and residents from Phase 1 & 2 of the regeneration. Two positions for young people living on the estate are also available.

Design Team meetings will take place once a month until June 2013 and will work with the architects to look at:

  • The internal and external appearance of blocks
  • Layouts of bedrooms, kitchens, cupboards etc
  • Internal materials such as doors (types/colour), curtains/blinds etc.
  • Security and safety features

To find out more about how you can get involved with the RSG and Design Team contact your Independent Tenants’ Advisor, NewmanFrancis on 0800 644 6040 or wgita@newmanfrancis.org

This month we also feature a list of Frequently Asked Questions from the RSG which Catalyst provided the answers to. This will be a regular feature in future editions of Here & Now. Please get in touch and let us know if you find the information useful.

The next Residents’ Steering Group meeting will take place on Thursday 4 April, 6pm-8pm at the Venture Centre. Don’t forget to pop in and see us at the ITA surgery from 5pm-6pm, before the main meeting. Catalyst staff will also be on hand to deal with any regeneration, repairs and maintenance issues.
