Parliament embarks on probe into regeneration

  • Comment

The Parliamentary Committee for the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) has launched an investigation into the success rate of the government's regeneration policy.

It aims to discover whether current urban renewal policy is cost-effective and whether decision-makers in the ODPM learn from past mistakes. It will be the first time a parliamentary committee has investigated the success of the government's urban renaissance agenda.

'The chairman and the committee have been waiting to do this for quite some time, ' the committee's clerk Sarah Hartwell said. 'It will look at specific case studies and particular cases. It will search for successes and failures and will attempt to highlight best practice exemplars, ' she said.

The committee heard the first submission last Tuesday and will continue its investigations over the forthcoming weeks.
