Urban Regeneration Companies

Urban Regeneration Companies (URCs) are special purpose vehicles set up to deliver complex regeneration projects: attracting and co-ordinating public and private sector investment around a shared plan with the aim of achieving the sustainable transformation of their areas.

URCs take a strategic overview of their area and develop a set of objectives in partnership with public and private partners and, most importantly, the communities themselves. They deliver regeneration outcomes in order to achieve the long term sustainability of communities.

Examples of completed and on-going projects and activities have been provided for each of the six URCs established in Scotland to illustrate their work and highlight the priorities and issues specific to their area.
