Estate Regeneration National Strategy
The Estate Regeneration National Strategy was published on 8 December 2016 by the Department for Communities and Local Government. It was developed with the Estate Regeneration Advisory Panel, co-chaired by Lord Heseltine and the Housing and Planning Minister.
Through a combination of practical advice and guidance, it is intended to support local partners in improving and accelerating estate regeneration schemes to deliver more and better quality housing, drive local growth and improve outcomes for residents. It connects schemes with wider redevelopment initiatives and has the potential to deliver thousands of additional homes.
It is underpinned by three key principles considered necessary to deliver successful regeneration:
- Community engaged as partners.
- Support and leadership of the local authority.
- Willingness to work with the private sector to access commercial skills and lever in investment.
The Strategy includes guidance on:
- Resident engagement and protection.
- The role of local authorities.
- Finance and delivery.
- Good practice guide.
- Better social outcomes.
- Alternative approaches.
- Partner engagement.
- Case studies.
The estate regeneration funding prospectus allows areas to bid for a share of £140m of loan funding, £30m of enabling grant, and £2m of capacity building funding. This is targeted at de-risking the early stages of regeneration schemes and providing support to areas for activities such as community engagement, feasibility studies, scoping of proposals and masterplanning.
