Millenium Villages and the Urban Village Task Force
A UK report via the Office of the Prime Minister on sustainable urban villages...
In March 1999 the DETR commissioned action research into the Millennium Villages initiative and its contribution to sustainable development, and to stimulate debate about the creation of sustainable communities. The project had key aims to:
- support the development of sustainable communities in a wide range of contexts, including local housing and regeneration programmes in urban areas, small towns and rural areas; and
- propose a framework to facilitate the subsequent evaluation of the Millennium Villages initiative and to draw out any transferable lessons which could be fed back into their current development.
