This is a long term regeneration project which will see the demolition of all four tower blocks as well as the maisonettes on the estate as well as the other areas within the regeneration area. Southend-on-Sea Borough Council and Swan will work closely with South Essex Homes who manage the Queensway Estate on behalf of the Council during the project to support residents. Tenancies will remain with South Essex Homes until residents are moved into their new home and all residents will be provided with a team of dedicated officers to support them.
All secure tenants and leaseholders will be offered the right to return to the regenerated estate. For residents who wish to move elsewhere Southend-on-Sea Borough Council has the obligation to support residents with this move and will work with Swan to offer alternative accommodation.
Detailed FAQ's have been prepared for Tenants, Leaseholders and Temporary Tenants, and this will be uploaded online when they have been shared with affected residents.
