This chapter looks at the governance and institutional terrain within the British context to explore how these two related factors — integration of differing policy agendas and coordination across and within spatial levels — have influenced the nature and effectiveness of the policy response. It outlines the institutional structures and governance arrangements responsible for delivering economic development to deprived neighbourhoods. It also considers the issue of different levels of intervention, examining the rationales for intervention at different spatial scales and how different types of activities have been pursued at varying neighbourhood, local, subregional, city-regional and national levels. The chapter also specifies the principal barriers to policy integration and coordination and how these vary locally. The chapter concludes by identifying key issues related to governance arrangements and policy delivery in relation to the economic development of disadvantaged areas.

Keywords:   institutional terrain, policy integration, deprived neighbourhood, economic development
