The Centre for Housing Market Analysis manages four Learning Networks which focus on:
- town centres and local high streets
- community regeneration and tackling poverty
- housing energy efficiency
- housing management and efficiencies
The networks form a cross-Government initiative that connects a range of people from the public, private and voluntary sectors across Scotland. Responding to needs expressed by stakeholders, they give practical help to people and organisations working at a local level. Allowing you to interact with others and share common concerns, problems and interests, improving your knowledge and expertise in the process.
What is the context for the Learning Networks?
The Housing and Regeneration Learning Networks support the Scottish Government's purpose, targets and national outcomes by enabling public, private and voluntary sector partners to become more effective at regenerating communities and providing affordable housing which is well managed and energy efficient.
