If you think you’ve been involved in a great regeneration project which has been driven and inspired from the grassroots here is a chance for you to get national recognition – but you’ll have to act quickly.
The British Urban Renewal Association is working with the Department for Communities and Local Government to recognise “outstanding grassroots regeneration projects; the schemes that address local issues and as a result are raising community spirit and improving quality of life.”
The site for entries is here and the entry pack here. You might think we’re bonkers telling you on the day entries close to get your form in. It’s not that bad. I’ve just spoken to Rob Brady at BURA who tells me their real concern is to get people involved. If you’re interested then give Rob a call (number on the Bura website) to let him know that a late entry is coming I’m certain he’ll be delighted to hear from you.
If you go for it please let us know – and good luck.
