Urban regeneration: who defines the indicators?

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the study with the East Brighton community to identify numerous other indicators suggestive of areas of concern untouched by the national framework. It suggests an alternative range of indicators reflective of residents' participation, partnership working, and service quality and organised to provide relevant information on structure, process, and outcome. It concludes by emphasizing that the failure to challenge prescribed indicators serves to impede power-sharing since indicators specified may not cover issues of great concern to residents.

Keywords: urban regeneration; East Brighton community; residents; power-sharing; service quality
