This chapter looks at housing and regeneration as two dominant influences on neighbourhood life. It examines the way housing, its history and ownership, its management and access routes can determine the way families feel about their neighbourhoods, and whether they will stay and work to improve them. It also assesses the impact of major regeneration programmes, particularly involving demolition on the viability of communities. It notes that resident owner-occupiers are in a minority in all the disadvantaged areas explored, and most bought their homes from the council under the Right to Buy, trying their housing investment into the social make-up of the areas.

Keywords:   housing, regeneration, neighbourhood life, demolition, disadvantaged areas, Right to Buy
