This chapter looks at the form and character of the shift to sustainable community building through an assessment of the relationships between employment, labour-market building, and (sustainable) spatial communities. It evaluates the differences between these policy agendas and those of the post-war period that were outlined in Chapters Three and Four, and documents the ways the sustainable community has become the primary policy vehicle that delivers and implements its wider agendas. The chapter also presents an argument which states that the new agendas are premised on particular conceptions of (im)mobility and the relationships between place, employment, and community building.

Keywords:   sustainable community building, relationships, spatial communities, policy agendas, primary policy vehicle, conceptions of (im)mobility
