This chapter discusses debates on the generation and flow of knowledge in neighbourhood renewal. It concentrates on the ‘academic’ debates on the use and value of evidence and in particular research-based evidence in policy processes and sets out the policy-centred debate. It also concentrates on the New Deal for Communities (NDC) programmes by first considering the programme as a whole and then considering how knowledge has impacted on the activities of two case study partnerships. It explores the processes by which knowledge is generated within the NDC programme which captures some of the tensions inherent in the efficiency versus participation debate for local government more widely.

Keywords:   neighbourhood renewal, academic debates, research-based evidence, policy processes, policy-centred debate, New Deal for Communities, knowledge, efficiency, participation
