Facts

  • The Castle Vale project, approved in stages between 1964 and 1968, consisted of one 20-storey tower (containing 116 flats) and nine 16-storey towers (containing 896 flats); eight of which were known as the 'Centre 8'.
  • During the 1990s, the Castle Vale Estate underwent an extensive regeneration programme. 32 of the original 34 tower blocks were be demolished, to make way for lower density houses. The redevelopment was undertaken by the Castle Vale Housing Action Trust (HAT), which was established in 1993.
