Stemming from a need to understand strategic processes, examine current practices, and identify the needs of regeneration management professionals, this book cites current regeneration management practice within a framework which critically examines the theoretical models developed over the past twenty years. It features illustrative case studies, learning objectives, key themes boxes, and review and reflection segments, and explains strategic processes and new forms of local, sub-regional and regional management. It also investigates the development and extension of the roles of regeneration managers (which increasingly illustrate the uneven and contradictory nature of this subject), and raises important issues regarding how such individuals are supported and developed. This book:

  • examines current initiatives in order to present good practice
  • provides practitioners and students with an understanding of the choices, challenges and dilemmas faced by regeneration managers
  • focuses on the themes of partnership, capacity building and community engagement, participation and sustainability
  • has an accompanying web page featuring downloadable PowerPoint slides and test blanks.

A valuable resource for public sector managers, and urban management professionals, this book synthesises strategic literature and applies it within a changing local, sub regional and regional governance system. Providing a clear framework within which new models of strategy and implementation can be found, it presents a balanced approach between existing theory and practical case material.
