How should Authorities approach a resident ballot for estate regeneration?

The implementation of a resident ballot requirement by the Greater London Authority for council estate regeneration projects aimed to put residents at the centre of decision-making processes. With eight ballots having taken place so far across the capital, the ambition is to ensure generation of London’s housing estates happens with residents’ support and engagement.

Research into the ballots that have taken place so far reveals a number of variations in the nature and timing of the processes, with the potential for differing degrees of success in terms of meaningful resident engagement.
