Shedding light on regeneration

  • Comment

Civic Regeneration is collating examples of alternative sources of funding for street and other public lighting products developed as part of regeneration programmes. This will lead to a contact sheet for practitioners suggesting the various forms of funding available and contact names for schemes already developed.

Practitioners are asked to send details of projects that they have been involved with so that best practice can be shared.

Lighting of the public domain has been playing an increasing role in regeneration schemes because it can meet many of the aims of regeneration:

1) improved safety

2) boost for the 24-hour economy

3) energy efficiency and therefore sustainability

4) reduced accidents

5) the accentuation of historic buildings or design features

6) reduction of light pollution through careful design

7) creation of jobs

8) attraction of inward investment through changing the perceptions of an area.

The work is due to start in May and complete in June. The work is concentrating, at this stage, on external lighting.
