This chapter examines the approach, targets, and achievements of the National Strategy for Neighbourhood Renewal (NSNR) in England. It explores the question of how delivery can be better aligned with good theories and methodologies for closing in on target outcomes, principally those for closing gaps between deprived neighbourhoods and national averages. The chapter describes the changes in governance represented by innovations such as Local Strategic Partnerships and Local Area Agreements and discusses the lessons that can be learnt from the Health Action Zones.
