Framework for Regeneration Areas
What is “Regeneration”?
Regeneration aims to transform places over time to improve the quality of life of the people who live and work there.
“Regeneration” covers many activities. We contribute to Regeneration through these programmes:
- the Communities First Programme;
- Flying Start;
- 21st Century Schools;
- NHS capital spend;
- the Transformation programme to improve learner outcomes;
- Stock transfer and Housing Renewal Areas;
- Rural Development Plan;
- European funding;
- Heritage-led Regeneration;
- infrastructure investment such as transport, property and broadband; and
- our own Location Strategy and new offices in Aberystwyth and Llandudno Junction.
This Framework looks at our Regeneration Areas approach.
This approach seeks outcomes from local investment to address market failure and equity issues that fall outside national policies. By investing in areas, we aim to improve prosperity and wellbeing in Wales.
The approach started with the Heads of the Valley programme. It has provided us with experience and knowledge which helps us understand the barriers to regeneration and to develop solutions which address local issues.
The approach is now being used in six more programmes across Wales at:
- Môn a Menai;
- North Wales Coast;
- Swansea; and
- Western Valleys.
The approach varies between areas but covers a wide range of activities, from tourism and leisure, to health and education, to employment and entrepreneurship. It supports our wider anti-poverty work and benefits people and communities.
