  • Abstract:

    The paper looks at the interlinked physical and social problems of Britain’s inner-urban areas from the viewpoint of a volume house builder. It describes the tactical failures of large scale demolition in the 1960’s and 1970’s and of the current policy of rehabilitation. It proposes a new, more flexible strategy based on dedicated management teams with the powers needed to match solutions to specific problems.
