Regeneration and Retrofit report launch

Regeneration often focuses on large scale redevelopment projects. But regenerating the UK’s cities will mean transforming areas where it is impractical or unviable to demolish and rebuild. UKGBC’s Regeneration and Retrofit Task Group has been investigating the regeneration impacts of whole home retrofit and how it can be integrated into wider improvements to transform whole communities.
This event will see the launch of the findings, with short presentations from members of the task group and perspectives from central and local government. We are delighted to be joined by:
- Alex Willey, Head of Regeneration Projects, Clarion Housing Group
- Andy von Bradsky, DCLG Adviser
- Mark Atherton, Assistant Director GM Environment, Greater Manchester Combined Authority
The Task Group has been developing innovations which could help to deliver high quality retrofit-led regeneration projects. These include proposals for social enterprises that engage and represent residents and maximise employment opportunities for local people, and for local authority revolving funds which provide compelling financial offers to all private households in an area. The intention, later in 2017, is to work with local authorities and industry partners who could trial such approaches on upcoming projects.
This event will be followed by a drinks and networking reception.
