Excellence in Regeneration Award
This award acknowledges the critical importance of a range of bodies, organisations and local groups in revitalising communities and neighbourhoods. It also recognises that physical improvements go hand in hand with social and economic developments to make a real difference to people’s lives.
It is targeted at helping to achieve the strategic objectives to create places that are healthier, wealthier, fairer, smarter, stronger and greener. Regeneration projects should work in partnership with funders, service providers and most importantly, communities, to encourage successful regeneration that contributes to a wider vision and brings benefits to all customers.
The judges in particular will be looking for evidence that lasting improvements have been made in the area, both physical and socio-economic and that there are good prospects for the long term viability of the area. Entrants should address how the regeneration project fulfills one or more of the following criteria:
- Improved the quality and mix of homes
- Developed a sense of place
- Contributed to broader local regeneration
- Showed evidence of partnership working
Who is eligible?
The award is open to any organisation, group or partnership that can show how it has met as many as possible of the criteria listed above.
