Builders Keepmoat, Midas and Pearce Construction will then replace the old estates with 345 new eco-friendly homes
The ambitious schemes is expected to cost up to £35m and will see new homes built with solar panels and air source heating to meet Code 4.
All three housing estate programes will be built in phases to allow tenants to be decanted into newly built homes over the thre-year long project.
The original homes were built after the Second World War to cope with a housing shortage and are riddled with structural faults and deficiencies.
The 345 new homes comprise a mixture of tenures. Currently it is envisaged that there will be around 120 market sales with the rest social rented.
