The contribution of housing to urban renaissance

The purpose of this scoping study was to explore the role of housing development across the West Midlands region in generating urban renaissance.

The Regional Housing Executive of the West Midlands Regional Assembly has commissioned a literature review to identify how housing development both within and outside the Major Urban Areas (MUAs) of the region can support the goal of Urban Renaissance, a key aim of the West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS). The purpose of the research is to explore the role of housing development across the region in generating urban renaissance. The underlying assumption, or perhaps hope, is that a renaissance of the major urban areas in the West Midlands would help reduce the outflow of working households into the more rural parts of the region and at the same time assist disadvantaged households by providing both affordable housing and employment.
