estate regeneration statement GOV UK DCLG ,Lord Heseltine ,Brandon Lewis MP

Introduction The Prime Minister has called for an ambitious new estates regeneration programme– ambitious at every level. We will engage with up to 100 estates from around the country, to stimulate proposals for the transformation of those estates, a significant increase in housing, and, most importantly, improvements in estate residents’ quality of life.

£140m of loan funding has been set aside by Government, to be used as a springboard for partnership and joint venture arrangements, with the active involvement of communities. We have established an Expert Advisory Panel, with a focused remit of work. The Panel will consider how to foster partnership models of estate regeneration, and determine which financial approaches can fuel regeneration in both high and low land value areas. 

The Panel will also consider the quality of design options and, of course, how to ensure existing estate residents are fully protected in future schemes, as well as how to engage communities in preparing proposals. Our Panel has commenced its work, and will report by the Autumn Statement.

Here, we set out some illustrative principles to help guide initial expressions of interest. We invite people to get in touch – local authorities, community groups, developers, investors, whoever may be interested in this field. 

A team in DCLG is ready to help develop your proposals, regardless of whether they are at an early or advanced stage. Our goal is a long-term sea-change in estate regeneration, to build more quality new homes, and to transform the life chances of residents, both current and future ones. 

additional pocket parks programme :

More than 80 unloved and neglected urban spaces across the country will be transformed into green oases for everyone to use.
