This book provides a deep insight into urban regeneration schemes and explores the parameters of what is deemed a sustainable development, before appraising existing schemes’ evaluation models for the sustainable return on investment. The authors present a new practical evaluation tool that suggests quantifiable benefits for all urban regeneration stakeholders. This new method enables the gauging of the full sustainable impact, from a given outlay of money invested in a housing-led urban regeneration scheme, through an evidence-based proof and can be used to: - Better fulfil sustainability criteria in terms of all three aspects of the triple bottom line and contribute in a more sustainable way to address the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 11 - Reduce financial waste and plug the gap created by the recent economic shortfall which is impacting on housing associations, tenants and communities alike - Evaluate historical housing-led urban regeneration schemes and model future schemes. The method can be used as a strategic decision making or management tool, with schemes being able to be planned in, prioritised or carried out in a targeted and strategic manner; and it can be used for modelling purposes, for publicity purposes and alongside existing tools. This book provides a unique method of fully and sustainably evaluating housing-led urban regeneration schemes, useful for planners, strategic management, local authorities, housing associations, the construction industry and built environment students alike.
