Plans to regenerate Eustace Crescent are gathering pace and people living in the area can find out more at a drop-in session next week.
The event next Wednesday will give people the chance to meet the project team, including the architects, and view potential housing designs and timescales.
In 2011 Wokingham Borough Council asked people living in flats and maisonettes in Eustace Crescent what they thought about the future of their homes.
Following the consultation, residents supported plans to demolish the blocks and regenerate the estate.
The drop-in session is from 4pm to 8pm at The Cornerstone, in Norreys Avenue.
Councillor David Lee, leader of the council, said: “This is an ambitious but exciting project for us.
“Work has been ongoing to explore a range of regeneration options for Eustace Crescent.
“We’ve carried out a feasibility study to look at how the site can be used in the future and we’d like to share these ideas with local residents and the wider community.
“It’s very important we get their views and I hope many people will take the time to drop into this information session.”
The council has successfully re-housed nearly two thirds of people living in Eustace Crescent and once all properties are vacant, demolition will begin.
