This award applies to regeneration schemes which have been completed within the past 18 months. We are looking for innovative regeneration schemes which have completely turned around communities and reversed their fortunes. Shortlisted schemes will have improved the economy of areas, as well as the physical structure.
We are looking for truly inclusive schemes that have been developed in conjunction with local residents and which are truly part of the local community. We want to hear about schemes that have improved quality of life and reversed economic, social and physical decline – those that have left a lasting legacy. There must be evidence of tackling barriers to growth and reducing worklessness, breaking cycles of poverty and providing opportunities for growth.
