This article examines the impact of urban policy on Britain's inner city areas, and specifically on the various communities living within them. It is suggested that policies need to address the issue of ‘racial’ inequality directly, rather than relying on trickle-down effects from conventional economic regeneration models. Problems with current urban renewal service delivery policies are highlighted, and proposals are put forward for models of ‘good practice’. © 1992, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
