- Enc. 1 for North Wales Regeneration Strategy and the Targeted Regeneration Investment programme, item 175 PDF 3 MB
As detailed in the recommendation.
The Chief Officer (Planning, Environment and Economy) introduced the Regional Regeneration Strategy and Welsh Government Targeted Regeneration Investment (TRI) Programme report.
Welsh Government (WG) had launched the TRI programme to provide funding for regeneration projects across Wales. Funding was conditional upon the submission of a regional regeneration strategy and upon a regionally-prioritised approach to developing investment proposals.
A draft regeneration strategy had been developed within the challenging timescales set for the process and a collaborative approach had been taken across North Wales to develop and prioritise investment, and to concentrate limited resources into priority regeneration areas and thematic projects which would make use of the first three years of the TRI programme.
The draft North Wales regeneration strategy proposed twelve towns as priority areas for regeneration which were listed in the report. The towns had been identified using the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation rankings for overall levels of deprivation. Flintshire towns Holywell and Shotton were ranked 7th and 8th respectively. There were two thematic projects which could apply to the Flintshire towns, which were housing renewal and key buildings.
That the draft regional regeneration strategy for submission to Welsh Government be approved.
