URBAN RENEWAL POLICY IN A EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE
Preview not available

Abstract

This contribution tries to construct an overview of urban renewal policy in European countries. The ministries, responsible for urban renewal, completed a questionnaire in which issues of urban renewal policy were raised. The focus of the article is on three themes: - urban renewal as government policy; - goals, motives, and backgrounds; - instruments of national policy and their legal framework. There appears to be no universally applied model of urban renewal legislation. Mostly national urban renewal policy is fragmented. An integrated approach to urban renewal must often come from the cities themselves. Relatively high public expenditure on urban renewal is encountered in the United Kingdom, Sweden, and the Netherlands. In various countries, the urban renewal policy is under review. An integrated policy for urban renewal has recently been developed in France, the United Kingdom, and Germany. These large European countries demonstrate a distinct trend toward the development and emancipation of urban renewal policy as separate from housing policy.
