Main Description
The city of Glasgow has changed dramatically in recent years in terms of social and economic regeneration. This study examines some key initiatives, many local-based, which have facilitated these changes including models for local labour market intervention, training and lifelong learning. However, problems still remain regarding inadequate public transport, land-use allocation, and the number of distressed urban areas. The book considers urban regeneration policy options to realise greater social cohesion for the city, including the redevelopment of the Clyde waterfront, which build on its historic tradition of partnership and innovation.
