The newly proposed Right to Regenerate scheme has received a mixed reaction from industry professionals, with the proposals slammed as “misguided”.

The Right to Regenerate would make it easier for the public to challenge local authorities over derelict buildings, and help communities looking to transform their neighbourhoods. It could also represent a route to market for small sites that could be earmarked for custom and self build.
