Populo Living: Development Management (formerly known as Red Door Ventures (RDV)
In February 2020 the Council gave approval for Populo Living, formerly known as Red Door Ventures (RDV) to provide development management services for the next stage of work for the restoration of the estate. Populo are a developer of private and affordable homes and are solely owned by the Council. Populo, working closely, with the Council, now leads on discussions with residents to co-design a viable and deliverable development option.
Populo and the Council are working closely with residents to create a detailed vision for the Carpenters Estate and turn this into a financially viable masterplan. This plan will contain a clear ambition for the future of the estate, looking at how it will ensure it is restored as a neighbourhood and how it will connect to the wider Stratford area. It will also demonstrate the plan for delivering additional homes.
