Abstract

Summarizes the currently available strategies for success in carrying out improvements in the state of housing estates. Discusses the symptoms of the degeneration and outlines the actual problem as estate design, poverty, bad estate management and fuel poverty. Suggests solutions based on improved estate design and estate management, and affordable heating. Declares that the only method of measuring the success of these solutions is in terms of alleviating the symptoms of social breakdown.
