The strategy aims to transform neighbourhoods by delivering high-quality, well designed places, more homes and opportunities for residents.
The government says that estate regeneration can offer new opportunities for residents by connecting schemes with wider redevelopment initiatives and has the potential to deliver thousands of additional homes over the next 10 to 15 years.
The strategy includes advice on:
- Resident engagement and protection
- Role of local authorities
- Finance and delivery
- Good practice
- Better social outcomes
- Alternative approaches
- Partner engagement
- Case studies
Between now and 31 March 2017, the government aims to continue working with the Homes and Communities Agency on a regional basis to help local partners accelerate their schemes. Other actions include assessing bids and allocating enabling funding (2016 to 2017) and project finance.
