This chapter stresses the need to view the regeneration of estates in the context of how all public services operate. It cites the study of housing renewal in inner London, England, and on a benchmarking study in Brighton. It argues against the claim that public services are now successfully engaged in joined-up thinking and action. It highlights the importance of considering the issues of osmotic effects and non-zero-sum situations, and exporting costs across sectoral boundaries in order to achieve a more holistic working in urban regeneration.

Keywords:   public services, urban regeneration, housing renewal, London, England, benchmarking, Brighton, non-zero-sum situations, osmotic effects, exporting costs
