40 delegates (councillors, tenants and officers) attended our
first Regional Event in London in May to learn more about the
government's plans for Estate Regeneration.
As well as receiving a briefing on the Housing and Planning Act,
Jackie Sadek, Specialist Regeneration Advisor to the Department of
Communities & Local Government's Ministerial Team, gave
delegates a detailed insight into the government's approach to
regeneration and the work of the
Estates Regeneration Team jointly chaired by Lord Heseltine and
Housing Minister Brandon Lewis.
Peter Richmond, Chief Executive of the Pioneer Group and Chris
Jones of Wandsworth Council shared their experiences of
regeneration schemes in Castle Vale, Birmingham, and York Road
estate in Battersea.
