The Failure of Regeneration Policy in Britain
AbstractTwo main types of urban problem exist in the UK. The first is problem localities in prosperous cities, the second is depressed towns and cities per se . In both cases, and despite years of policy intervention, there is little evidence that the situation is improving. There are fundamental economic problems to be addressed on both the supply and demand side. Recent government policy directed at regions, urban areas and the planning system is very much supply focused. Preferences will have to be altered so that peripheral regions and problem neighbourhoods become more desirable. A changing balance of government spending and increased costs of motoring should be priorities.
