This chapter examines the sustainable new communities and neighbourhood renewal. It considers the key drivers of change in the British housing system, and identifies the economic, demographic, and environmental factors involved. A critique of policy approaches that is focused on sustainable communities and neighbourhood renewal is included. The chapter concludes that more needs to be done to produce sufficient amounts of affordable housing, rather than relying on piggybacking private developments.

Keywords:   sustainable community, neighbourhood renewal, key drivers, British housing system, environmental factors, policy approaches, affordable housing
