Abstract/Description

THIS paper outlines the research that has been carried out
to understand Large Urban Distressed Areas (LUDAs)
and the community-based approach to sustainable
urban regeneration that cities are developing to meet the challenges
LUDAs pose.1 After exposing the limits of current government
policy towards LUDAs and offering a critique of the
property-market based approaches underlying them, the paper
goes on to highlight the key roles community participation and
futures workshops2 can play in sustaining their regeneration and
bringing about improvements in the quality of life.
