In the document I launched on the 5 March, I announced plans for a new White Paper focused on empowering citizens. The document also outlined our plans to develop a framework for regeneration, and the future of the Working Neighbourhoods Fund.

We will be engaging with stakeholders over the coming months through regional events, expert panels, government offices, discussion forums and third sector organisations. The learning from these exercises will help shape the white paper and future regeneration policy. The empowerment white paper will be published in the summer.
