In January 2021, the government announced the Right to Regenerate which enables the public to call for councils and other public sector bodies to sell unused land and assets which could be put to better economic use. The proposal aims to "make it easier [for the public] to challenge councils and other public organisations to release land for redevelopment - helping communities make better use of public land and give a new lease of life to unloved buildings."
In this episode, we interviewed DJB Partner, Planning & Environmental Specialist, Yohanna Weber to hear her thoughts on the viability and future prospects of the Right to Regenerate.
