The urban landscape of the UK is undergoing its most dramatic transformation since post-war reconstruction.

Examining key aspects of the process from first principles, Urban Regeneration in the UK:

- introduces and contextualises the UK urban regeneration agenda

- brings together state-of-the-art research around key themes in governance, sustainability, competition, and design

- uses case studies of UK contemporary regeneration projects

- combines academic and theoretical explorations whilst linking theory and practice

- includes pedagogical features of key learning points, useful websites, a glossary and further reading

Aimed at those studying and working in the field of urban regeneration and planning, Urban Regeneration in the UK provides a highly readable introduction to urban regeneration for undergraduates, post-graduates, and practitioners.
