Teviot Estate: What community-led regeneration for people looks like 

With the majority of local residents backing proposals for the regeneration of the Teviot Estate, Poplar HARCA and Hill Group are leading the way in community-led urban design.

We all know that revitalising districts that are in decline is a complex, long-term business. Successful urban design isn’t just a matter of creating shiny new housing that looks good in brochures. It must also deliver more and better-designed affordable housing, improved green spaces, and investment into existing services and infrastructure investment. 

The most forward-thinking place making projects are also investing in enterprise schemes to build the foundations of long-term prospects of the local economy. And the very best schemes ensure existing communities are not pushed out but rather are placed at the heart of the design process, bringing their own local knowledge to the table.
