Community Led Regeneration, Lessons from the Past for the Future

Community planning, the work of Hastings Voluntary Action, the Ore Valley Forum and now Big Local North East Hastings, the Hastings Pier Charity and a host of other initiatives have put Hastings on the map as a place in which the community have been active in influencing regeneration processes.

On Wednesday March 25th 2015, local residents (including representatives from Big Local North East Hastings), community organisations and academics were among those gathered at the University of Brighton in Hastings, Havelock Road, to explore what we could learn about community led regeneration in the local area and how what has been learnt from past projects can be used to inform future initiatives. The event was organised by The Hastings Exchange.

The PowerPoint slides and posters from the afternoon are available to view on the Hastings Exchange blog - please click here.

The Hastings Exchange brings together university, community and local business partners in the Hastings and Rother area to exchange knowledge.  For more information please click here.
