    Regeneration to remain with DfC 24 November 2016

    Communities Minister, Paul Givan MLA, has announced that regeneration powers, that were due to transfer to the new Councils, will now remain within DfC (via the Department for Communities)

     

    Outlining his decision to retain regeneration functions within the Department during a statement to the Assembly, the Minister said regardless of where legislative responsibility lies, Local Government does and will continue to play a huge role in ensuring the successful implementation of our regeneration programmes.

    The Minister also announced that he would explore whether there is a case for extending regeneration activities such as public realm to settlements of less than 5,000 people and that he is to review the Neighbourhood Renewal Programme as part of a wider consideration of how best to address deprivation.

    Speaking about his decision to retain regeneration functions within the new Department for Communities, the Minister said: “The Programme for Government sets out an entirely new context for the delivery of our services, including the way in which we address poverty and disadvantage, and the way that we use our statutory powers to drive economic growth and lever new investment to benefit everybody in this society. The key message from the Executive is that we all, whether in central government, local government or outside of government, must ensure we work in a joined–up way.”
