In identifying good practice in regeneration, CREW will bring your attention to case studies drawn from different regeneration sectors and different geographical locations in Wales and the wider world. The purpose of case studies isn't to suggest that the same approach will work anywhere but more to highlight the principles of operation which create good results. We hope you will take the time to explore the case studies as they develop. They include both reading and where possible audio-visual materials to provide you with first hand insights.
