What's regeneration all about?

I find myself quoting my favourite quote about regeneration again so I thought I'd put it up here:

‘…community participation should not be seen as a pre-requisite for the delivery of decent services. People living either in poor or more affluent areas are entitled to both quality services and an acceptable living environment. We should not accept a situation where people living in more deprived communities have to go to countless meetings or engage in endless arguments with decision makers simply to receive a level of service that other people take for granted.’
(Scottish Social Inclusion Network Strategy Action Team, 1999: 23)
