This chapter investigates the approach to urban renewal adopted by Great Britain's New Labour government in the early years of the twenty-first century. It highlights the modification of the geographical horizons of New Labour's urban-renewal agenda and examines the substantive significance of liveability to the sustainable communities agenda. The chapter attempts to interpret the broader implications of the sustainablecommunities liveability agenda through the lens of a range of distinct conceptual approaches. It argues that if we accept that anti-social behaviour might be stemmed by reducing residential turnover, the sustainable communities plan may be effective by its efforts to create places people want to live and remain in.

Keywords:   urban renewal, New Labour government, Great Britain, sustainable communities, anti-social behaviour, residential turnover
