Vibrant and Viable Places – A New Regeneration Framework

Vibrant and Viable Places – A New Regeneration Framework
Welsh Government, March 2013
Vibrant and Viable Places is the Welsh Government’s new regeneration framework.
The Welsh Government’s new regeneration framework, ‘Vibrant and Viable Places’ was launched at the Senedd on 11th March 2013.
The new framework is the result of a review of approaches to regeneration in Wales and further afield that took place during 2012 and extensive consultation with partners from October to January 2013. The Welsh Government’s vision is that everyone in Wales ‘should live in well-connected vibrant, viable and sustainable communities with a strong local economy and good quality of life’. The framework has the backing of the whole Cabinet. It promotes a well-evidenced approach combining support for people and places, and encourages partnership working by the public, private and third sectors.
The framework seeks to get the best out of every pound spent by the Welsh Government in terms of mainstream funding like health and education. In addition, intensive targeted regeneration investment in a small number of key places will be used to support local growth in town centres, coastal communities and Communities First clusters.
