Overview


This study provides the results from major original research addressing issues which are central to current debates about social cohesion and neighbourhood renewal.The research focuses on Bournville - a successful, mixed tenure residential neighbourhood in Birmingham. The findings of the study contribute to current debates about social capital and policy responses designed to achieve more balanced and cohesive neighbourhoods. It challenges simplistic approaches which tend to advocate the social engineering of mixed tenure developments, changes to allocation policies or the disposal of socially rented housing into ownership as ways of achieving 'successful' neighbourhoods.
