This chapter focuses on the reality of rhetoric of community involvement in urban-regeneration partnership in Great Britain. It evaluates the effectiveness of Elephant Links Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) and Project Vauxhall, two resident-based organisations that claimed to represent local people and use confrontational tactics. The chapter investigates whether these organisations were able to advance the arguments they made using these tactics, and whether they could have advanced them more effectively within or outside the partnership. It argues that early regeneration policy under Tony Blair’s first term as Prime Minister was characterised as an uncritical and poorly conceptualised idea of community.
