At the end of the twentieth century the cities of Barcelona, London and Berlin set the tone for European urban renewal. Thanks to a unique approach, Flanders now seems to have taken the lead: the so-called Concept Subsidy enables smaller towns to develop high-quality urban renewal projects. This book offers a critical review of the six years in which 15 towns received this subsidy.

'Framing Urban Renewal in Flanders' presents the evolution of urban development related to spatial planning, socio-economic activities and cultural heritage in Flanders. Special attention is given to the concept funding, a Flemish financial support and individual guidance for the development of a solid project base and an innovating project vision.
