Bell, D. and Jayne, Mark 2003. 'Design-led' urban regeneration: a critical perspective. Local Economy 18 (2) , pp. 121-134. 10.1080/0269094032000061396

This paper develops a critical perspective on ‘design-led’ urban regeneration, which is a fuzzy term used to describe a diverse raft of economic development strategies. A definition of design is outlined and then utilised in an assessment of a number of local and regional design-led urban regeneration schemes. A more detailed critique of one such project, the North Staffordshire Design Initiative, is then undertaken. We argue that there is a lack of best practice models and empirical research to guide policy makers.
