This project examined how organizations working together to regenerate Merton view regeneration and the requirements for successful partnerships. Twenty-two, semi-standardized interviews were conducted with representatives from a variety of organizations in Merton. Using qualitative analysis, similarities and differences in responses were explored. This information along with background research was used to draw conclusions on whether these organizations have a mutually consistent understanding of regeneration and partnership work. Conclusions also discuss the implications of these findings.
