CONCLUSIONS • Some narrowing of the gap between deprived • and less deprived areas. • Deprived neighbourhoods remain a long way behind. • There is no single ‘model’ of a Neighbourhood Renewal Area. • Place based outcomes easy to realise than people based outcomes.
CONCLUSIONS • There is no evidence base of interventions which inform Partnerships how to move from baseline to outcomes. • Neighbourhood programmes will not be enough on their own to achieve significant change. • The biggest changes to the levels of poverty in the most disadvantaged areas will come from mainstream programmes.
RECOMMENDATIONS • Neighbourhood regeneration is a long-term • objective. • Regeneration needs better links to wider policy environment. • A continuing/stronger emphasis on worklessness is justified. • A greater emphasis should be placed on setting and monitoring progress against targets at the individual neighbourhood level.
RECOMMENDATIONS • Develop new models of delivery which bring together regeneration resources and mainstream spending in a • more complementary way. • Success should be measured by the outcomes not activities. • Projects which do not display the ability to contribute to agreed outcomes should not continue to be supported. • Maintain support from and full engagement with the people and communities involved. • Partnerships - fundamental to planning and delivery of neighbourhood renewal.
