There are a number of derelict spaces in your area, work individually or as a group to develop a proposal to pitch to the council and show how you could rejuvenate the local area
You live in an old seaside town which used to be a popular tourist destination in the 1950s and early 60s. The once-booming local economy relied on tourism, retail and agriculture.
Since then, a lot has changed.
Unemployment is high and most young people leave the area when they leave school to find work or to continue with further studies. There are many empty units on Main Street and quite a few derelict buildings including the old theatre and an empty 200-bedroom hotel with an overgrown Victorian walled garden. The sad remains of the old boating pond and crazy golf course are targets for vandalism and blight the sea front.
You feel passionate about regenerating your local area to provide employment and to boost the local economy, so you have decided to join the community council in preparing plans for this regeneration project. The local council has said they will look favourably upon any ideas which have sustainability at their heart.
