Neighbourhood Management

Note: the following entry is a stub. Please help us complete it. 



Originating in the United Kingdom, neighbourhood management "involves the organisation, supervision and delivery of goods and services, the maintenance and enforcement of reasonable standards of repair, maintenance, supervision and provision of acceptable environmental conditions within agreed lines of control and accountability."[1]


Problems and Purpose

Neighbourhood management has been used primarily in low-income neighbourhoods as a way to reform service delivery, improve living conditions and build community capacity. The process is fundamentally participatory in that it involves community members directly in the planning, implementation, and maintenance of services and infrastructure.
