ABSTRACT

Community-led urban regeneration in Korea has received great attention as an alternative to large-scale urban redevelopment. Since it is still its infancy, there is not enough reference point for community participation and governance structure. Notably, more research on community enterprise is needed since it plays a significant role in community-led urban regeneration. This research attempts to analyze the role and limitation of community enterprise through a case study of Shoreditch in London where community-led urban regeneration called New Deal for Communities(NDC) took place. Shoreditch Trust was the leading agency which initiated NDC based on community voice and still exists as the legacy of NDC. However, it has been criticized as it lost connection with the community. For sustainable community-led urban regeneration, it is crucial to have a monitoring system to make a balance between communities and community enterprise and empower communities to manage their problems by themselves in the long run. In order to this, communities should be given an opportunity to run urban regeneration.
