Bottom up Development/ BUD

BUD is a type of community organising and regeneration done by and for the community.

In ‘bottom up development’ the community says what the problems are and works towards there own solutions.

BUD matters because ‘traditional’ top down regeneration has a reputation for not listening and for focusing on short term orcapital projects that don’t help communities.

Examples include community managed green spaces, growing and food projects, libraries and repair cafes.
