Ways for the public and private sectors to work together to achieve urban regeneration must be found, CIPFA delegates were told.

Paula Hay-Plum, chief executive of English Partnerships, explained that urban regeneration needs participation from both sectors. 'Public sector bodies cannot do it alone,' she said.

'Design-led regeneration is not just about buildings, it's about people, and quality is best achieved through partnerships.'

There must be an emphasis on communities rather than just the construction of new towns, Ms Hay-Plum said.

Political will from central government is important, but the solutions must not be imposed from above, she added.
