Regenerating with the Local Community – A Collaborative Journey; Re-Writing the Narrative’
Earl’s Court, London.
The Movers & Shakers Core Forum, ‘on location’ at Earl’s Court, will focus on how places can be regenerated and built with the local community at the core! A partnership of the Private, Public and Community sectors!
The Vision– ‘Bringing the wonder back to Earls Court’.
An ambitious draft masterplan was launched in February ‘23, setting out the path for the c. 40 acres of derelict land – Earl’s Court, to be transformed into a thriving, blended use community; with the locals involved in every step of the journey! And benefitting from its evolution!
With a tour of Earl’s Court by those at ECDC, that live and breathe the vision and progress, and through our afternoon of content; we will discuss how local communities can be central to a regeneration story.
How can social impact be delivered across a lengthy time line? Can culture and the arts be a conduit for community engagement? Can investment returns be lifted through added social benefit?
Meet the leaders from the private and public sectors (and the community!), working on this large scale regeneration scheme; along with other experts in regeneration and London. What is the ‘Public Realm Inclusivity Panel’ and how does it inform the consultation? What have the local communities used the Community hub for over the past year? How is the project engaging with local young people and ensuring they’re involved in the development’s future?
And how can the regeneration of places deliver skills / education and employment opportunities?
Planning the future of London at this large scale, involves strong leadership and collaboration. Join the ’movers and shakers’ of the UK Property Industry at this
