Urban design and planning are essential elements in how we navigate the social world. This is because urban environments typically constructed for social and cultural reasons, can create health inequalities within the urban landscape. Urban regeneration is the process of renewal or redevelopment of the social and built environment through policies, programmes and projects aimed at urban areas which have experienced multiple disadvantage. This article argues that urban regeneration is an important publichealth intervention and that by changing the urban physical, social and economic environment this can facilitate health development for disadvantaged communities.
