The city-wide regeneration strategy known as 'Going for Growth' adopted by Newcastle City Council includes proposals for large-scale redevelopment of low-income, low-demand housing neighbourhoods and the introduction of a more affluent population to these areas. 'Going for Growth' is examined in terms of the concepts of gentrification and the Dutch policy of housing redifferentiation. Links to the major themes in recent UK urban regeneration of 'urban renaissance' and 'neighbourhood renewal' are examined, and the conflict between the perceived need for a 'critical mass' of affluent incomers and the imperative to consult and empower local residents is explored.
