Abstract

Changing political agendas have shaped models of urban regeneration in Scotland. Latterly, this has focussed on social justice and inclusion reflecting the policy direction of new labour and the Scottish Parliament. In addition the experience of community regeneration and imposition of a national Community Planning agenda, has contributed to the development of strategic instruments for tackling poverty and exclusion in its cities. These factors influence the architecure of the urban areas.
