Urban regeneration is a process of upgrading and redeveloping a part of a city, led by either a municipality or by private developers. Developing planned residential areas can yield more socioeconomic benefits to a city – more extensive basic urban infrastructure, more secure tenure and property rights, and higher returns on public investments – than upgrading neighbourhoods. Urban regeneration, and in particular the redevelopment of informal areas and squatter settlements into areas representing mixed income, have benefits to inner-city redevelopment and modernization.
