Phase I Urban Pilot Projects

During the period 1990 to 1993, a total of 33 Urban Pilot Projects were initiated in 11 Member States. These Phase I Urban Pilot Projects address a wide range of urban problems, more often than not through a comprehensive and integrated local strategy aimed at maximising physical impact and generating public and private investment. Problems addressed include: social and economic deprivation; poor land use planning; neglected historic centres; poor links between research and development activities and small and medium-sized enterprises; and derelict industrial wasteland. 

The total planned budget for the projects was ECU 204 million, with half of this financed by Article 10 of the European Regional Development Fund. The first two projects, London and Marseilles, began in 1990. Subsequently the programme grew rapidly with 24 projects beginning in 1991 and 1992, and a further tranche of seven projects beginning in 1993. 

The experience and lessons of the Phase I Urban Pilot Projects informed the adoption, in 1994, of the URBAN Community Initiative aimed at tackling issues of urban regeneration and cohesion as well as the adoption, in 1997, of a Second Phase of Urban Pilot Projects.
