Peabody St Johns Hill new build development St Johns Way

All the news relating to the regeneration of the St John's Hill estate

Progress update (October 2016)

Phase 1 of the redevelopment is now complete, and those who have bought shared ownership or private sale homes are in the process of moving in. We have started work on phase 2 and demolition are in progress and will be taking place over the next few months.

We will then bring the site down to street level and remove the boundary wall. Many of you attended an event organised by our contractors, Sisk, to provide more information about the demolition and phase 2 construction.

To find out more, contact Gerry Lonergan (Sisk) on 07826 550128 or Julie Conrad (Peabody) on 07738 804 647.

Peabody appoints sculptor for public art project

We’ve selected sculptor Rodney Harris to design a series of external artworks at St John’s Hill. Rodney’s proposal is to create brick relief sculptures embedded in the facades of buildings throughout the estate.

The sculptures will represent the memories and histories of residents past and present. Rodney has set up a Facebook page documenting the sculpture's progress.

New timelapse video

At the start of the redevelopment, we set up a camera to take a series of photos charting its progress. Here's the story so far: 

Want to join the residents' steering group?

steering group

The residents’ steering group is closely involved in all aspects of the St John’s Hill regeneration.

“It’s our chance to have a say about where we live,” says Lynette, a member. “We can point out things that the architects might not be aware of, such as the places where people congregate, or where we need more lighting."

If you’re interested in joining the group, please contact Sarah-Jane Day, Neighbourhood Manager, at


Community activities

A variety of regular classes and activities take place at the community centre, including flower arranging, mosaics, pilates, quilting, bingo, line dancing and a playgroup.

If you have any ideas for activities, please contact Rebecca Fenner, Community Worker:
