Abstract

This paper explores the emerging regeneration strategies for inner suburban areas. Drawing on evidence from Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds, the authors argue that regeneration of these inner areas can do more than upgrade housing and environments for existing residents; they can become more attractive to a wider range of households as convenient, accessible locations for larger, more affordable housing than is available in the city centre or the more recent suburbs. But care will be needed to create appealing, safe, walkable places; to define and deliver an attractive offer for new residents, and to avoid displacement and tensions with existing residents. Here is a potential site for one version of sustainable communities in the early twenty-first century, if it is approached sensitively and intelligently.
