£500,000 of improvements coming to Heath Town

People who live in Heath Town are being given an opportunity to improve their area with more than £500,000 for community facilities.
In 2008, Wolverhampton City Council decided to transfer management of Heath Town from the Heath Town Estate Management Board, a Tenant Management Organisation, to Wolverhampton Homes.
The former Tenant Management Organisation had £559,216 in reserve which is now going to be spent benefiting residents on the estate.
Now people who live in Heath Town are being called on to have their say about how the money should be spent.
Mark Henderson, Director of Housing at Wolverhampton Homes, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Heath Town. If used wisely, it can make a difference to people’s lives for many years to come and it’s only right that the reserves of the former EMB are spent on the estate.
“We’ll be looking at the things tenants and leaseholders have already told us they want and asking for more ideas before it will go to a vote later in the year.
“I’d urge everyone to come along to our ideas events, tell us what you want and play your part in making history for Heath Town.”
A series of consultation events will be held from 1 June-11 June. The drop-in sessions to share ideas are being held in the precinct, at the ball court, at each of the high rise blocks, and the Heath Town Community Centre.
Some of the ideas already suggested include improving security through CCTV, lighting on the sports pitch, setting up a community garden and improving play areas.
