Reviving your town through local partnerships and active communities

We know that tackling the challenge of regenerating our high streets, ageing housing estates and struggling coastal towns is critical to future local and regional economic success. By supporting the regeneration of our high streets and town centres, councils and their partners can remove the barriers to growth, strengthen communities and support people back into work.

As we all continue to face tightening budgets, we need a new approach to help local economies prosper and grow. This new model needs local councils and partners at the helm taking joint action to address unique local challenges. We know that our councils are always seeking new and innovative ways of working that make more effective use of limited resources and capitalise on the strength of its local and regional partnerships.

This thought leadership event is aimed at promoting and identifying innovative new ways of regenerating high streets, coastal towns and housing estates. The event will also provide a platform for councils to promote case studies of good practice and hear to hear from thought leaders and central government what challenges there are to regeneration and how these can/should be overcome.

Speakers confirmed include:

  • Russell Beal, Manager, New Anglia LEP
  • Rory Bergin, HTA Designs LLP
  • Jackie Sadek, Chief Executive, UK Regeneration
  • Nicholas Boys Smith, Director, Create Streets

Audience: This event is aimed at council leaders, chief executives, elected members for economic development, housing and regeneration and LEP representatives within the East of England.
