On an 81% turnout, 86% of residents backed proposals for regenerating the Teviot estate with new homes, new green and play spaces, shops, community and faith facilities, and improved infrastructure.

An independent ballot of 617 eligible Teviot residents was conducted by Electoral Reform Services.

Since the ballot, consultation with the Residents’ Steering Group (RSG) and the local community has been ongoing, with residents contributing to the scheme’s procurement and designs.


You can find details on what people are telling us on Commonplace, a dedicated consultation hub for the Teviot regeneration, where you can share your thoughts on the plans, at any time.

RSG Meetings

“We worked with Poplar HARCA to make sure the Offer was what residents want for the future of their estate. We’re really pleased that the community has voted [so overwhelmingly] in favour, and we look forward to the plans becoming Teviot’s future reality.’’

Residents’ Steering Group

"Teviot residents knew what they wanted, and Poplar HARCA has put together the offer based on residents’ ideas about what is most important. This was a truly collaborative project, and I look forward to continuing to work with the Residents’ Steering Group to deliver their vision.”
