Community-led Regeneration: A Toolkit for Residents and Planners

Dr Pablo Sendra

Research Description

Through seven London case studies of communities opposing social housing demolition and/or proposing community-led plans, Community-Led Regeneration offers a toolkit of planning mechanisms and other strategies that residents and planners working with communities can use to resist demolition and propose community-led schemes. Together, these case studies represent a broad overview of groups that formed as a reaction to proposed demolitions of residents' housing. The toolkit includes the use of formal planning instruments, as well as other strategies such as sustained campaigning and activism, forms of citizen-led design, and alternative proposals for the management and ownership of housing by communities themselves.
