BME Communities and Regeneration


Race, Equality and Planning:

This project, based on the most comprehensive survey of local planning authorities in the country, examined the state of town planning policy and practice as it affects Black and ethnic minority groups in Great Britain. This Local Government Association study was undertaken jointly with CURS at the University of Birmingham.



Race and Regeneration:

This project, for the Local Government Information Unit, assessed the impact of national urban policy initiatives (in particular, on the impact of the first three rounds of the SRB) on Black and ethnic minority groups in England.



Race and Regeneration: Black and Ethnic Minority Group Experience of the Single Regeneration Budget Fund:

This study examined the impact of the SRB Challenge Fund on Black and ethnic minority (BEM) groups, post Round 4 of the SRB Challenge Fund. In particular, the study focused on the experience of BEM organisation-led Challenge Fund partnerships, to identify any lessons that might be emerging on BEM communities’ involvement in urban regeneration processes. The study built on earlier research undertaken by the authors on behalf of the LGIU, under the title of Race and Regeneration: A Review of the Single Regeneration Budget Challenge Fund.
