A new wave of place renaissance: shaping a fairer England

11th February 2009.

The gap between the rich and the poor is growing and increasingly the economies of our towns and cities are characterised by stark and unsustainable differences in income and spending power. To address this, and create cities and towns that include all citizens, requires a new approach to place renaissance, where much greater emphasis is placed on equality and fairness within our cities. This is an area of policy research that CLES is particularly interested in and forms one of our policy priorities for 2007/08.
