Estate Regeneration National Strategy

The Estate Regeneration National Strategy aims, through a combination of practical advice and guidance, to support local partners to improve and accelerate estate regeneration schemes to deliver more and better quality housing, drive local growth and improve outcomes for residents.

The strategy states that estate regeneration can transform neighbourhoods and people’s lives through the delivery of high quality, well designed housing and improved public space. Estate regeneration can offer new opportunities for residents by connecting schemes with wider redevelopment initiatives and has the potential to deliver thousands of additional homes over the next 10 to 15 years.

The Good Practice Guide - Part 1 states that when agreeing an approach to planning policy and process the question that must be asked is is there a clear approach to embedding the project in local planning policy and navigating the statutory planning process? The Guide states that the landowner and local planning authority should agree the appropriate planning process for setting new or complying with existing local plan objectives, and the necessary steps for obtaining a planning consent.
