B9: Consulting Communities

28th March 2003.

It has now been widely recognised among regeneration and local economic development practitioners that consulting communities is beneficial in achieving effective and sustainable regeneration.

In particular, residents’ consultancy schemes are part of a wide range of activities that aim to improve local services in deprived areas and the quality of information available about running better community projects.

Recent research from the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) explores the potential contribution of residents’ consultancy approaches and has triggered new interest in the topic of community consultation in the press.
