Q: I am writing a dissertation on the role of heritage regeneration and was wondering how Leicester Regeneration Company was incorporating it into its work?

A: LRC sees the heritage of Leicester as very important for it?s the city?s identity and as a key factor in attracting tourism.

Although our projects do not directly involve the regeneration of historic buildings, where those buildings are of quality, we seek to integrate them into our proposals (for example, the new office development at the former Police Station on Charles Street).

We are also co-sponsoring a Project Officer in the City who is working to develop heritage-driven opportunities.
