Private sector involvement through partnership, PFI or other mechanisms is a critical component of the urban regeneration process. To date there has been little research into the perceptions of the private sector, reasons for involvement in urban regeneration and relationships between private and public sector actors. This paper is based on focus group discussions with actors involved in the regeneration process. Interpretation, which is from a qualitative perspective, investigates four main themes namely the rationale for private sector investment in urban regeneration; policy mechanisms to lever private sector investment; the financing of urban regeneration; and the alleviation of risk.
