The Urban Revival

Restoring economic viability with private and public partnerships

With a fully joined up approach, cities and towns all over the UK can develop effective strategies to use private sector partners and government funding for developments that can be truly transformational.

The urban revival is not for the faint-hearted, it requires bold thinking and long-term commitment of resources. Local authorities understand their own local issues better than anyone and are perfectly placed to draw together the sometimes contrasting agendas of business, communities and other stakeholders to create effective action plans.

With the right private sector partners on board to deliver these plans, the urban revival will be enabled by technology, and shaped for the diverse needs of the people who live in our cities now, and into the future.

Includes information about government funding opportunities and tips for attracting funding.
