Details

This section of the national strategy sets out the government’s expectations for how landlords, developers and local authorities should engage with residents throughout an estate regeneration scheme, and for how residents should be protected.

Successful estate regeneration schemes need to have the support of a majority of the residents, through what can be a very uncertain time for them. Early and ongoing discussions on plans for the estate, and residents’ personal housing needs and choices, will build a relationship of trust between residents and landowners and help to develop support.

A residents’ charter which defines commitments and opportunities for all tenants and leaseholders is a good way of collaborating with residents. A suggested template is included.
