What we learnt at school
This year’s CLES Summer School, ‘It’s time to deliver’, was held appropriately in Manchester, a city where ‘regeneration is the only game in town’, according to Manchester’s Council Leader Richard Leese. One
speaker, Marilyn Taylor referred to the ‘celebrated series’ of CLES Summer Schools. It had been a year since an array of speakers from the government and the Policy Action Teams had outlined the ambitious plans of the Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy to the previous Summer School. Rather than rehashing the strategy, this event focused on the issue of delivery: what are the mechanisms for bringing about change, how are they functioning and what should we be doing in the future?
