Greens talk regeneration

County Green party members met yesterday evening at St Marks Hall, Cheltenham to hear a presentation on a Green approach to Regeneration from Stroud-based green economist Molly Scott-Cato. See news release here.

The presentation was followed by a discussion on projects like Cheltenham's Civic Pride, Stroud's canal project and Gloucester's 'Magnificent Seven', the name given to seven key development sites.

In the light of the Full Council re the canal last week this was a very useful discussion - what will benefits be and are they the ones we should be focusing on? More on regeneration approaches coming soon as I have been working on thoughts with others and this evening have a hundred and one emails to answer - indeed will miss Transition Drinks at the Albert tonight...
