The next neighbourhood to benefit from wider external environmental improvements will be the Ayton Rise neighbourhood.

The improvements will affect customers living in the following streets:

  • Ayton Rise
  • Whickham Gardens
  • The Brow
  • St. Peters Road
  • Oban Gardens
  • Raby Cross
  • Commercial Road

The works are part of an £12 million investment programme by Karbon Homes between now and 2030. As part of the transfer of engagements with Karbon in April 2021 and the development of a Community Pledge, Karbon committed to invest in the Byker Estate which included a programme to improve the external environment.

The priority issues customers living in the Ayton Neighbourhood told us were important to them were:

  • Waste Management
  • Creating Safe Play and Open Spaces
  • Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Fencing
  • Car Parking
  • Security and Lighting

We’ll be making improvements to tackle all these issues as part of our wider estate plan.
