About this book


Intended for students of surveying, town planning, architecture and related subjects, this book provides an introduction to the theory and practical experience of urban renewal. It will also appeal to people and organisations, whether from the state or local communities, that wish to intervene in the 'natural' market-led process of urban renewal in order to modify the outcome in some way. The author begins with a historical review of urban renewal before going on to examine the economic and social context of modern renewal policy. Two further chapters deal with management theory and urban design, before the final part of the book uses this material to critically evaluate current British urban renewal policies.
