Each of the sections below will examine an aspect related to the benefits and detriments of gentrification, and will allow for a cohesive understanding of an issue that will continue to be hotly contested, not just in the United States but globally. As discussed below, gentrification is not without its benefits. A better neighborhood infrastructure is put in place through increased neighborhood investment, urban areas are re-born as the new residents move in and bring with them their own culture and there is the potential for a reduction in some types of crime. However these benefits come at a steep cost. Entire populations of people are displaced, the strong community support system relied upon heavily by the urban residents is removed, and the infrastructure that the poorer residents rely on for their specific needs is taken away.
This could be because Bristol has already undergone a regeneration process. This would mean that employment was quite good due to new businesses moving into the area, which would in turn lead to more money in the local economy. This is called the multiplier effect, and if a city manages to achieve it then they can be seen as successful. This could also be compared to London, as the levels of household deprivation are very similar. This could be due to the size of the city, as the population in London is huge and therefore the results are varied.
The urban consolidation of inner city areas in Sydney such as Pyrmont has played a large role in the areas development of culture and future trends including the increase of high-rise residential buildings due to the increased population density. Both urban dynamics urban sprawl and urban consolidation have made a major impact on areas of Sydney’s development, future trends, ecological sustainability and in particular, the growth and population growth of the city. A major factor of urban sprawl of which impacts areas on the fringe of city of Sydney such as Liverpool and Leppington is the increased population and the expansion of the boundaries of the city. As the city expands, more affordable and larger housing become available within the outskirts. This attracts more residents triggering the increase of Sydney’s population.
As Sydney became an emerging world city and it’s morphology changed, Pyrmont underwent urban renewal (both processes facilitated though the Better Cities Project), the new targeted residents of DINKS, SINKS, YUPPIES and high income professionals, who were attracted to the gentrified waterfront suburb with a desirable location needed suitable accommodation. Areas such as the Finger-Wharves and Jacksons Landing underwent urban consolidation, and became luxury apartments, and warehouses underwent adaptive reuse to become apartments. Role of Agencies: The SHFA is an important agency that in improving the quality of life for Pyrmont residents through human processes of change. The SHFA is active in Pyrmont and its surrounding areas in management of public spaces, heritage conservation and entertainment. Within Daring Harbour, 500m from Pyrmont the SHFA runs restaurants, shops, marinas and attractions like the Chinese Garden of Friendship.
The development also affected international and national tourists, who also had positive views of the development. The developments would result in better quality of service provided to them and more residential places to live in during their stay. Though with more modern buildings the older homes will be lost and so will much of its heritage, this is can be seen at a negative view by some tourist, but most would agrees that the developments are positive to an extent. Pyrmont’s identity is shaped by many factors and its heritage influences Pyrmont’s identity heavily. The late 20th century city life can still be observed in many parts of Pyrmont today, and some buildings are heritage sites, such as the old residential houses seen at John and Point Street.
This will improve the trading process for not only the company, but also the rest of the country. The benefits of a better transport infrastructure in our countries include improved capacity and better connectivity between cities and nations which helps to boost trade, and create growth and
With reference to examples, evaluate the success or otherwise of urban regeneration schemes in combating the causes and consequences of urban decline. the need for urban regeneration is present as soon as an area starts to enter the "downward spiral" of deprivation. This is the theory that there is a knock on effect which leads to the decline of an inner city area. Urban regeneration, theoretically, can be tackled by starting with any point on the downward spiral, and setting about on reversing the loop so the chain reaction is a positive one. Although urban regeneration is a worldwide issue, it has been especially present in the urban areas throughout the UK in the last 30 years, with the government introducing many different schemes to try and combat the causes and consequences of urban decline.

This revitalization project was designed to create a form of social development plan and promote inclusion and address transitional issues in the Regent Park community (Toronto Community Housing, 2007). Regent Park is characterized by a high rate of poverty, unemployment, and a diaspora city (Statistics Canada, 2006). As a result, it experiences a higher level of violence, drug abuse, and social ills compared to other cities in Toronto. People outside of the Regent Park area fail to identify with and commit to this area which has created much under awareness and unwillingness to invest in this community. Even individuals that live in this area see the community as a “transitional community” (Statistics Canada, 2006).
Similar to the ideal of our Nation, to increase education and accessibility to all, for our country is better when more people get degrees as our company is. To have any real sustainability as a company, education is a primary factor in the success, not just for the elite few, but also for the masses. The introduction of increased benefits in the tuition reimbursement program will send a significant message of respect and caring to employees. The application of the program will show benefits daily. What better to invest in
