This paper examines the potential for reworking run-down UK city neighbourhoods in the light of the significant progress already made in mainland Europe and explained so clearly in the foregoing contributions. Very different kinds of neighbourhoods can be created in our own cities. We can open up new housing options and lifestyles for a range of household types while reducing resource use and associated pollution. Using the example of the area of Leeds South Bank, it is argued that there is a chance to design an exemplary neighbourhood where future urban dwellers will be able and willing to live, work and meet a wide range of requirements within a relatively small area, thus reducing their environmental impact while ensuring a reasonable level of prosperity and wellbeing. But this will only be achieved if there is a willingness to use imaginative foresight, learn from elsewhere, and break down some of the barriers that stand in the way of innovation and the adoption of practical and far-sighted solutions.
