A comprehensive and integrated vision and action which attempts to improve the quality of life for the benefit of everyone who visits, lives or works in an area – particularly an urban neighbourhood – which has become run-down as a result of socio-economic changes, and which seeks to bring about a lasting improvement in economic, physical, social and environmental conditions. Cultural Heritage is integral to the policy and practice of regeneration. For example, one important way to preserve and re-use the historic fabric of a city is to accommodate the creative and cultural industries and various arts and community groups in refurbished, architecturally-significant buildings.
