Recent months have seen heightened public scrutiny of regeneration projects, as seen by the resignation of the Leader of Haringey Council over the Haringey Development Vehicle and the Mayor of London's plans to introduce mandatory ballots of residents for future estate regeneration schemes. These developments demonstrate an increasing need for estate regeneration projects to show that they can deliver additional housing and better social outcomes for local residents.

Join Westminster Briefing on 28th June for an up-to-date brief on the latest policy and legal developments affecting estate regeneration and to learn how local authorities, housing associations and developers can work better together to deliver rejuvenated housing estates.

Key Issues to be Addressed Include:

  • Update on the Estate Regeneration National Strategy
  • Funding available to support estate regeneration
  • The role of local authorities, housing associations & developers in delivery
  • Regenerating estates to provide new homes and deliver better social outcomes
  • Effective use of available powers, including compulsory purchase
  • The impact of introducing mandatory ballots of residents for estate regeneration schemes
  • Case study examples of good practice in estate regeneration
  • Ensuring there is community support in place so that projects go ahead
  • Upholding good design and quality standards for regeneration projects

The Event:

The morning session will focus on recent policy and legal developments affecting estate regeneration, and will cover the powers, funding and guidance available to those engaged in regeneration projects.

The afternoon session will examine a number of case study examples of successful estate regeneration.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs for dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
