Description

Stronger local government with new powers to raise finance for regeneration is the way to accelerate urban renewal. Urban regeneration in Britain is being held back by lack of resources, weak local government and too much focus on community at the expense of physical solutions. These are just some of the views of the 130 experts featured in the Urban Regeneration Toolbox, a new guide for urban regeneration practitioners launched at the House of Commons in March 2007. The Toolbox represents a generations worth of British experience in regeneration and features 80 essays from experts and the opinions of 50 more key thinkers and players. It is a significant contribution to the regeneration debate in Britain and covers all aspects of regeneration. The box contains five books that distil the accumulated wisdom of the planning sages.
