Environment, Housing & Regeneration

Matters concerning housing and the local environment are naturally high on the list of local people’s priorities and local residents have been heavily involved in driving forward the tremendous improvement to the area over recent years.

Their involvement has helped partners to achieve key milestones, such as the production of the Hattersley Masterplan (the physical development framework for the area) and the transfer of social housing to local landlord: Peak Valley Housing Association.

Now, with obsolete housing demolished, void properties re-let, the £40m refurbishment of social housing well underway and the arrival of new housing developments as well as an estimated investment of over £200m in new housing and community facilities – residents continue to play a key role alongside private and public sector partners.

Partners are committed to ensuring that the area gains maximum benefit from planned investment and that existing and future management of housing, community facilities and the environment meets the needs of local residents.

Work on area cleanliness, which has seen Hattersley now ranked one of the cleanest areas in Tameside (itself amongst the top-ranked authorities in the North West) continues, with education and promotion “green” issues, such as: energy efficiency, effective waste management and recycling also a focus of attention.

The Environment Housing and Regeneration Theme Group is responsible for coordinating action on behalf of a wide range of partners working with Hattersley Neighbourhood Partnership. Click here for more information.
