University help to address Heanor regeneration

A forward-thinking partnership with Nottingham Trent University’s School of Architecture and the Built Environment is looking at potential regeneration initiatives in Heanor town centre.

Keen to explore new and innovative ways of improving the area’s town centres, Amber Valley Borough Council has welcomed the opportunity to get new views on the challenges facing Heanor, and how they may be tackled.

As the first phase of the project, a group of 15 mature students from the University visited Heanor on Wednesday (18 February), to meet with Council representatives and look at Neighbourhood Planning and explore whether such a plan would be a good mechanism to aid the town centre’s regeneration.

The students, who are working towards their Postgraduate Certificate in Planning, Urban Design and Sustainable Development, at the University, will follow up this initial work with a presentation of their findings in April.

Leader of Amber Valley Borough Council, Cllr Paul Jones, commented: “We very much welcome the opportunity to work with the University on this project and are looking forward to hearing a different take on the issues facing Heanor, and, hopefully, some alternative solutions too. This is part of our vision to look at improving all of the towns across the Borough and is part of a long-term economic regeneration vision for Amber Valley, which we will be launching later this year.”
