Open for consultation; Good Practice Guide to Estate RegenerationDecember 16, 2016
As part of Homes for Londoners, The Mayor has launched a new good practice guide for estate regeneration. The guide aims to ensure that regeneration of London’s housing estates happens with resident support and engagement.
The Mayor has set out key principles that he wants followed in all estate regeneration projects. These say that regeneration should only happen where:
- there is a clear statement of the aims and objectives of the borough or housing association in maintaining and improving housing estates
- there has been full and transparent consultation and resident engagement
- proposals should offer full rights to return for displaced tenants and a fair deal for leaseholders
- demolition should only be followed where it does not result in a loss of social housing, or where all other options have been exhausted
The guidance is open for consultation between December 13 2016 and March 14 2017.
London First will launch our own Estate Regeneration report on January 24th, 2017.
