Locals' role to be studied in gateway plan

Ways of involving Thames Gateway communities in decisions about the regeneration of the area are to be explored by the University of East London.

Commissioned by the planning team at law firm Denton Wilde Sapte (DWS), the project follows numerous plans to drive regeneration in the growth area. The university's urban regeneration evaluation research team will conduct the research.

The study will include the government's £100 million in funding, the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation and the regeneration impact of the capital's 2012 Olympic bid.

DWS senior solicitor John O'Hara said: "We have commissioned this research because we take community involvement seriously. We want to contribute to the debate, make sure that lessons are learned from past experience and improve practice all round."
