Regeneration isn’t just about buildings

Seeing positive changes in the lives of residents forms a vital part of regeneration. That’s why we’re working with a charity called the RSA to improve opportunities for residents in College Bank and Lower Falinge.  With input from the local community, we are exploring ways we can support people who are out of work to find jobs, and help those who are in work to progress their careers.

By improving employment and skills for local people, we can help to keep the community together, and deliver wider benefits locally as part of any future regeneration at College Bank and Lower Falinge.

This topic is explored by the RSA in a new blog. The article talks about the need for investment in local regeneration and more housing choice as well as the importance of working with residents to bring about change that not only benefits places but people too.
