Lessons for area regeneration from policy development in the 1990s
Challenge funding, contracts and area regeneration looks at the evolution of area regeneration policy during the 1990s, focusing in particular on management processes, a matter of increasing concern in recent years.
The authors examine the three rounds of the Single Regeneration Budget Challenge Fund and contrasts these with the French Contrat de ville programme. These two programmes are considered in the context of the Labour Government’s agenda for area regeneration. The authors conclude with lessons and implications for future developments.
