This article reviewing Australian and international research on community regeneration within public housing redevelopment, explores implications for Victoria, in building community sustainability within the context of a public–private mix. It shows that the requirements for successful redevelopment are similar to those for sustainable communities, with a need to attend simultaneously to economic, social and environmental development. Public housing redevelopment presents particular challenges requiring careful attention to design, services, management and safety. Equally important are the tasks of confronting social exclusion and poverty. Building community empowerment, cohesiveness and problem-solving capacity require both initial effort and ongoing investment because of the impacts of disadvantage and resident mobility.
