Abstract

The following report discusses the regeneration initiative of the London Borough of Redbridge, asking whether the current strategy being ) implemented can be considered as a comprehensive, complete and sustainable regeneration programme The report begins with an attempt to find a definition of regeneration with which to gauge the regeneration schemes discussed for their inclusion of the essential elements that make a complete strategy, using spatial economic theory and Government and regional policy as a guide. It then considers Redbridge in the wider scheme of the regeneration programmes that are ongoing within the London Thames Gateway sub-region, and the potential for Redbridge to accrue the maximum benefit from the initiatives of their neighbours. Next the report makes a comparison between the London Borough of Redbridge and one of its close neighbouring boroughs, Waltham Forest, chosen for its similar situation as regards to regeneration within the Thames Gateway, to see which borough comes closest to the 'ideal' of regeneration. Critical analysis is offered of both boroughs programmes. Finally conclusions are made about the feasibility of the strategy of the London Borough of Redbridge and whether can rightfully be considered as 'regeneration' in the real sense of the word.
