Housing investment has made an invaluable contribution in the past to the regeneration of Glasgow's image. This has been both underplayed and overlooked. Other explanations for the city's regeneration, particularly those which focus on the Arts, have been given greater prominence. That said, housing investment is not the key element in the city's future regeneration. This is because there is a clear limit to the spin-offs which accrue from so-called housing-led regeneration. Employment considerations are far more vital for the future regeneration of Glasgow. Planning has to be about strategic thinking, and therefore it is critical that economic and housing aspirations for the city of Glasgow are considered together, rather than separately, as has been the practice in the past.
