In Chelmsford Diocese there are many such regeneration areas – notably in the London Boroughs and the Thames Gateway but also in Colchester, Harwich and elsewhere.
There are also plans for large new housing developments in many places across the whole diocese.
Archbishop launches new Commission on Housing, Church and Community
The housing crisis is to be the subject of a major new Commission launched by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. Academics, housing experts and theologians are to meet over an 18-month period to examine how the Church of England can build on its own work in housing and contribute to the national debate on policy.
The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Commission on Housing, Church and Community will explore a Christian perspective on housing policy with a particular focus on providing good homes and promoting thriving communities.
The gallery has pictures of some of the regeneration projects and larger new housing areas from around the diocese.
