FROM CAUSE TO EFFECT: A NEW AGENDA FOR URBAN REGENERATION IN SCOTLAND

G. Lloyd, J. McCarthy and K. Fernie

Local Economy, vol. 16, 2001, p. 221-235

Social Inclusion Partnerships (SIPs) are the most recent urban regeneration initiative in Scotland. They emphasize the designation of particular communities for practical support for specific projects within a city-wide regeneration frame-work. The initiative also addresses specific themes, such as young people or drugs, as particular facets of urban social exclusion. Both these approaches stress the need for a city-wide regeneration framework and the use of partnerships to implement programmes at the community level.
