The current recession has major implicaitons for residential-led activity across the UK. Current funding models are breaking down and the goals of regnereation activity, will, for some time, be uch harder to achieve. The government getting to grips with the big picture is a necessary condition for making future progress with regeneration. In the short term, registered social landlords have a more prominent role in keeping regeneration activity going, and ensuring capacity in the construction sector is not lost. Innovative thinking on funding models for property development in regenreation areas is required. However, recessions pass; regeneration remains about long term structural change, and the reisdential-led approach to regeneration will survive.
