This chapter focuses on New Labour's efforts to reverse the long-running negative impact on urban conditions of concentrated poverty within deprived areas and to break the connection between poor social and physical conditions. The first section of the chapter discusses the situation New Labour inherited and the development of the National Strategy for Neighbourhood Renewal. The second section discusses the measurable results of the strategy and the third section focuses on the relationship between wider urban, regional, and housing policies and the new neighbourhood renewal agenda. The chapter ends by assessing the future progress of neighbourhood renewal.
