The Welsh Government’s Minister for Housing, Regeneration & Heritage, Huw Lewis AM, this week launched a new national regeneration framework, Vibrant and Viable Places.
The new framework details plans for three broad sets of priority regeneration investment communities:
Areas of deprivation identified in the ‘Communities First’ programme
The framework also has a particular focus on heritage and outlines approaches to improve cross-sector partnership working in regeneration across the country.
The Scottish Government’s December 2011 National Regeneration Strategy, which shares a number of similarities with the Welsh framework, is meantime available here.
