There is strong evidence of Government commitment to urban renewal in the Urban White Paper and we have very much welcomed much that is in it. It demonstrates a recognition that successful regeneration depends on a stable economy, a progressive tax and benefit system, high quality education and healthcare as well as encouragement for enterprise and competitiveness. All of this must be backed up by physical change on the ground. There needs to be a greater recognition of the importance of physical regeneration to socio-economic centred regeneration activity. A great deal of progress has been made, but below is a summary of measures that we would like to see to build on this. These points are amplified in the attached paper.
