    Abstract

    The aim of this study is to investigate Government led initiatives for the creation of mixed tenure sustainable communities. The study aims to analyse whether such communities are successful in combating the negative effects related to living within areas of segregation, in particular areas of concentrated deprivation. The literature provided great scope on the topic, indicating levels of economic segregation, reasons for the emergence of concentrated areas of deprivation together with studies conducted to analyse the positive and negative effects of creating mixed tenure communities. To gain greater insight, primary research was conducted gathering the opinions from residents, housing officers and project managers involved with the creation of two, recently developed, mixed tenure communities. The data shows conflicting opinions between the residents, housing officers and project managers on the success of the projects. Such data suggests that Government polices promoting the inclusion of mixed tenure within future developments is not necessarily successful. The objectives were then aligned with the results and consequential recommendations were made. Such recommendations were made to the Government to adjust planning policies, attaching conditions to facilitate the success of future mixed tenure sustainable communities together with recommendation to overcome problems with widespread segregation within already existing communities.
