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 and 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 resident information is available here.
The key outcomes the Partners are expecting from the regeneration include an increase on the number of affordable homes, an attractive housing offer to both returning and new affordable tenants, addressing the Queensway highway, high quality public realm and delivery of long term social value to contribute to Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s 2050 vision.
