creates (quality) jobs and promotes small business development
For adaptive reuse projects to be self-sustainable, the (new / future) users–often creative, small,informal–organisations tend to need to go through a process of ‘formalisation’ setting up moreformal structures to operate within and collaborate from,to develop into an organisation that can(financially) sustain the asset / lease / maintenance in the long term (assuming dependency onfunding or gifts is not feasible).
This developmentcan potentiallycome with creating paid positions, e.g. to run theorganisation, aswell as help widen participation (support education, volunteering), or develop / sell a product /service.It is important to consider the type of jobs it will create, to avoid bad jobs (e.g. underpaid, tohigh a workload, and no securityin contract) and thus not actually contributing to people’slivelihood. The type of job will also depend on the chosen legal form, e.g. social enterprise,cooperative, charity or equivalent, as they come with different values, objectives, and structures,aswell as different access to funding, time, and other resources.
