Estate regeneration remains a contentious issue for developers to Government to councils. Striking the right balance between making the project improve the area in a place-based manner and for the right reasons, whilst maintaining support from the community and managing a project’s associated stigma can be challenging. With recent London ballots highlighting more democratic ways of decision making within schemes and other policy initiatives highlighting the need to deliver additional housing, better social outcomes and work with local residents, now is the time all those across the sector consider their estate regeneration strategy.

Join us on the 20th February for an update on the latest policy to estate regeneration. In particular, we will explore how to ensure an effective approach to residents as well as pick up on good practice from leading case studies.

Key issues to be covered include:

  • Progress to date with the Estate Regeneration National Strategy
  • Lifting of the HRA borrowing cap and leveraging housing assets to support strategic regeneration
  • Progress with and lessons learnt from London Tenant Ballots and securing estate regeneration projects in accordance with these
  • Meeting housing delivery requirements through estate regeneration
  • Funding available to support estate regeneration
  • How landlords, developers and local authorities should engage with residents throughout a scheme
  • Improving social housing in regeneration developments
  • Providing wider place-based regeneration and local growth
