Talbot Gardens - Barne Barton Regeneration

On this page

Sanctuary Housing is planning a multi-million-pound regeneration of Talbot Gardens on the Barne Barton estate in St Budeaux, Plymouth.

Under the proposals, we will be demolishing ten blocks of maisonettes and replacing them with a mix of high-quality new housing to meet the needs of the local community.

Sanctuary previously managed the 120 homes - located on Talbot Gardens, Savage Road and Roope Close – and completed the purchase of the freehold for the site in December 2019 following overwhelming support for a site regeneration from residents.

Following consultation with residents and the wider Barne Barton community we have now submitted a planning application to Plymouth City Council for a £35 million transformation of the area.

Regeneration proposals take shape

Resident feedback has been vital in helping shape our plans for the estate.

We had planned to hold another public consultation over the summer but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this was unfortunately not possible. Instead, residents were invited to provide feedback on our latest plans and ask questions via post, email, or a dedicated web page with the proposals.

Residents invited to discuss regeneration proposals

Exciting plans for a regenerated Barne Barton estate were launched by Sanctuary Housing in February 2020.

Residents and the wider community were invited along to a consultation event where they could view a range of displays, speak with staff and provide their feedback to help shape the future of Talbot Gardens.

Multi-million pound investment in Barne Barton

On 1 March 2019, Sanctuary Housing consulted with residents about the future of ten blocks of maisonettes on Talbot Gardens, Savage Road and Roope Close. The event, part of a month-long consultation, provided residents with the opportunity to provide feedback on two investment options for the estate – regenerating with new homes or refurbishing the existing properties.
