Regeneration and Housing Renewal Schemes

The 21st century demands a fresh approach to urban redevelopment. Large-scale town centre regeneration and estate renewal projects are key to addressing the economic, physical, social and environmental issues associated with town and city growth. Successful urban regeneration requires certainty regarding the provision and acquisition of land.
