Summary Top
 
Sums invested in EU-sponsored regeneration projects have achieved a great deal. Experience in a number of projects however, suggests a clear scope to improve targeting of regeneration and value for money (best regenerative effect for each unit of investment made). The idea of community growth focuses on the combined effect, on the community involved, of various regenerative measures. It is intended to provide a broad basis for assessing the outcomes of various measures that might be taken. Utilising joined up thinking with partners, the project is distinguished from other regeneration related projects in its aim of measuring the ‘outcomes’ rather than ‘outputs’ of regeneration investments.
 
Objectives Top
 
The project aims to: define clear objectives for regeneration in terms of securing ‘community growth’. This includes increased economic and social well-being and a distributional test. Combined with the provision of community facilities encouraging ‘social mixing’, investment in community growth leads to improvement in quality of life. Evolve suitable ways of testing what particular investments will achieve these objectives.
 
Outcomes Top
 
Results would be of direct value to participating authorities, and would provide a set of approaches and tools useful to a wider range of bodies. A further benefit would be to refine the role of grassroot partners in regeneration projects, with a ‘best practice’ guide being a parallel output of EU-wide benefit.
