Best practice in regeneration: Because it works
An exploration of the practical ways in which social housing management can be integrated into successful regeneration projects.
Social landlords have a key role to play in regeneration but effective intervention is about more than just investment and housing. This report charts a supportive project that linked four diverse regeneration programmes in different parts of the UK. By working closely together at all levels, the groups involved improved their strategic understanding and operational approaches.
The report highlights the key practical themes of what worked where and effective ways of learning from the experience of others. Best practice in regeneration present practical options for achieving:
- Diverse and flexible patterns of housing ownership, standards and tenure to retain stable communities;
- Residents who are committed to the area as a whole, not just to their own home;
- Community and economic development to build and sustain local capacity;
- Partnership working between and within organisations.
