James will be participating on the Policy Think Tank Neighbourhood renewal and estate regeneration: upgrading and improving low income neighbourhoods on 14 June.
His session, Official approaches to Neighbourhood Renewal and Estate Regeneration - social landlords’ responsibilities, will discuss:
The Policy Think Tank is organised by the Housing Plus Academy, and supported by the LSE on 14 June at Trafford Hall, near Chester.
The Housing Plus Academy is a partnership between 15 leading social housing providers, the National Housing Federation, the Chartered Institute of Housing and the National Communities Resource Centre at Trafford Hall. It has been developed to promote knowledge exchange and participative learning among frontline staff and tenants of social landlords. The Academy will tackle burning problems affecting both housing associations and local authority landlords today, particularly welfare reform, financial pressure, energy saving, work and skills, community enterprise, and resilience. Below we explain how the idea arose and how we plan to make it work. The Housing Plus Academy is supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and LSE Housing and Communities.
