UPDATE 22/9/17: Now it’s Choice Neighbourhoods HT @robbins_glyn

Everything that’s happening here now with so called regeneration has been happening in the USA before with the Hope VI programme and all its negative consequences which boil down to a net loss of housing for the poor.

Some have criticized the new developments, because they do not require a “one-for-one” replacement of the old housing unit—the new unit does not have to house the same number of tenants, which results in a net loss of housing for the poor.[11]

Some critics have said that local authorities use the program as a legal means to evict poor residents in favor of more affluent residents in a process of gentrification.[13][15] They have said that less than 12% of those displaced from old housing eventually move into the replacement housing.[9][10][13]
