This consultation document is the result of a policy review of approaches to regeneration
We are committed to investing in areas of Wales to help their economy thrive and regenerate communities, particularly in areas where there is high deprivation.

Vibrant and Viable Places

We have launched a new regeneration framework Vibrant and Viable Places which will operate from 2014-2017.

Local authorities will share a fund of more than £100m for projects in town centres, costal communities and Communities First clusters.

The aim is to achieve long-lasting economic and social change through investing in people and places.

Our approach aims to increase skills and employment opportunities and improve communities so they are better for people and the environment.

An additional £7m will go to town centre related projects that tackle poverty. This fund has been ring fenced for projects in the top 10 per cent most deprived areas in Wales.

Regeneration areas

Seven regeneration areas across Wales were established under the former regeneration framework. The regeneration area programmes are now drawing to a close. Future targeted regeneration investment will be through the Vibrant and Viable Places framework.
