Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to focus on partnerships of public and private sectors working on the implementation of urban revitalization projects. The paper aims to discuss the platforms for co‐operation, identify its partners against the backdrop of EU guildelines and point out possible conflicts that may emerge.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper elaborates on the work conducted by Skalski and it proceeds from the description of the entities engaged in revitalization projects through possible platforms of participation to some conclusions describing the current Polish scene of revitalization projects.

Findings

Results show that revitalization projects call for a close co‐operation between the citizens and authorities. Insufficient information and involvement of citizens may lead to reactions impeding the projects.

Originality/value

This paper provides important insights as to the sustainability of revitalization projects in Poland especially valuable for the practitioners not fully familiar with the Polish context.
