Strategic, multilevel neighbourhood regeneration: an outward-looking approach at last?

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter evaluates the outward-looking, multilevel neighbourhood-regeneration approach in Great Britain. It describes the Local Strategic Partnerships (LSPs) in England and the Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) in Scotland, and proposes a hypothesis as to why the area-based initiatives (ABI) model has been unable to fundamentally challenge neighbourhood trajectories. The chapter explains that while the multilevel approach seems to signal a shift away from a simple focus on the internal problems of deprived neighbourhoods, it remains surprisingly disengaged from wider structural issues, such as the management of the regional economy.
