- Part 1 reviews the key lessons from the past and the challenges that have to be faced.
- Part 2 describes the different approaches currently being taken and the issues that they raise.
- Part 3 identifies the implications for the future design and implementation of Neighbourhood Management strategies – for government at all levels, for other agencies and for local communities.
