The delivery of estate regeneration schemes is a rapidly changing area of housing and planning. In London, this is evident in the roll-out of the residents mandatory ballot scheme and the ‘Better Homes for Local people’ initiative. Particularly, developers must meet new policy changes by delivering additional housing, better social outcomes and working with local residents.

Attend this Westminster Briefing for a full update on the latest development in policy, funding and guidance relating to estate regeneration. You will learn how local authorities, housing associations and developers can work together to deliver high-quality redeveloped housing estates.

Key issues to be adressed:

  • Update on the Estate Regeneration National Strategy
  • Securing estate regeneration projects in accordance with the residents mandatory ballot scheme
  • Practice from a triad of perspectives: residents, councils and developers
  • Exploring the potential for developing infill sites in estate regeneration
  • Funding available to support estate regeneration

About the day:

The morning session will look at the policy, funding and delivery of estate regeneration schemes, as well as exploring the potential for developing infill sites in estate regeneration.
