Local regeneration, and action on local issues, is fundamental to the sustainability of local communities. This is especially the case in the UK, with the Government focus on such approaches as Local Enterprise Partnerships and neighborhood development plans, and further devolution proposals in the pipeline. The Local Regeneration Handbook meets the needs today’s practicing “regeneration workers,” broadly including anyone from regeneration partnership or development project officers to housing association neighborhood officers, parish counselors, or other active local citizens, who all share a concern for the well-being of the community where they live or work, and a need to work with others for the best possible future for that community.
