Funding Sustainable Communities: Smart Growth and Intelligent Local Finance

Publication Date :: 2004

A report showing how sustainable development or 'Smart Growth' needs to be secured through action aimed at upgrading the public realm, encouraging business growth and building sustainable communities.

This report in the Town & Country Planning Association (TCPA)Tomorrow Series shows how sustainable development or ‘Smart Growth’ needs to be secured through action aimed at upgrading the public realm, encouraging business growth and building sustainable communities.

 

The author believes that creating sustainable communities depends on securing more joined up investment at local level. This report suggests how a ‘step change’ might be secured through using the challenge of radically increasing the construction of new houses to introduce intelligent local funding mechanisms in locations that have the necessary capacity.
