Title

The refurbishment of high rise local authority housing blocks – involving the tenants: Lessons from the U.K.

 

Abstract

Since the late 1960’s it has been a popular perception in Britain that “High-rise” social housing blocks (over six storeys) are undesirable and therefore a major problem for Local Authority landlords. However, the status and significance of high rise blocks in the UK is beginning to change. This article discusses some of the programmes of refurbishment of high rise local authority housing.

 

Key Words

housing, refurbishment, high-rise housing blocks, Great Britain
