Housing and Community Regeneration
We know the importance to a community of ensuring that their homes and neighbourhood environment is clean, tidy and in good repair, and, how the downward spiral of anti-social behaviour and general deprivation can be reversed by well-managed neighbourhood regeneration investment.
To focus our skills on the specific requirements of Local Authorities and their communities, John Laing entered a joint venture company with Pinnacle Regeneration Group, called Regenter, with the express purpose of bidding for, investing in and delivering housing led, community based regeneration schemes. Regenter specialises in working closely with its clients and developing best local solutions to suit each different community’s needs, ensuring that projects are sustainable, affordable and deliverable. Regenter currently has five projects in its portfolio, which are improving the lives of communities based in London, the Midlands and the North.
Years of experience have taught us that housing developments thrive best when as much care is given to their environment as to the condition of the buildings themselves. It is a crucial part of our commitment that we strive to encourage greater care and respect for the neighbourhood among its inhabitants. We engage closely with the community to help build a pleasant environment, and encourage people to take a pride in their own surroundings.
This approach also has a tendency to reduce anti-social behaviour. Where it does still arise, we are able to lessen its impact by, for example, responding promptly to incidents such as breakages and property damage and dealing with minor issues before they become bigger. By cleaning graffiti within hours of its appearance we reduce the chances of repetition.
In each of our projects, we are developing local Community Development Trusts, run by the residents, through which PPP project funds are used to support local projects such as sports activities, out-of-hours clubs, environmental improvements and employment initiatives.
