Regeneration

Continuum offer a range of regeneration consultancy services primarily to Local Authority clients that help maximise the redevelopment potential of a site or wider area as well as analyse the social and economic impacts of a regeneration project. We support the public sector in the planning, delivery and management of regeneration initiatives that provide a catalyst for inclusive growth. We seek to promote economic growth through urban renewal that improves the quality of life for local communities.

We undertake financial and long-term cash flow models in order to ascertain economically viable development mixes and densities to inform regeneration strategies. In addition, we create long term investment strategies which can include developing and holding Local Authority assets to act as revenue generators.

Continuum have a proven track record of involvement in regeneration projects exemplified by the award-winning Wokingham Town Centre regeneration that was recognised by the RTPI in their annual awards 2020 winning the “Planning Excellence – Planning for a Successful Economy” category. In addition, we played an integral part in helping to secure grant funding through the Housing Infrastructure Fund for Tameside Council at Godley Green worth £10,000,000.

We carry out market research to determine the optimum development mix which enables the maximisation of monetised and non-monetised returns for our clients alongside benefits to the local community increasing quality of life.

As part of Trebbi we are able to work closely with colleagues to engage with stakeholders to shape regeneration visions and plans for cities, towns and local communities.

Public sector funding & public private partnerships

Continuum have a proven track record of enabling Councils to access various sources of funding and financing. This is achieved by establishing business cases to determine the most efficient way to deliver regeneration including direct delivery and private public partnerships. We have experience of managing the procurement process regarding private sector involvement in regeneration projects on behalf of Local Authorities.

Business Cases & the Green Book

We have expertise of creating business cases and undertaking economic viability assessments of proposed development schemes using the HM Treasury ‘Green Book’. This enables to understand the value for money of a project to the public sector.
