This chapter presents an analysis of the concept of sustainability, its application to local communities and what criteria have to be met if we are to achieve sustainable communities. The challenge for sustainable development lies in attaining the appropriate balance between the three components such as the environmental, the social and the economic. The chapter focuses on the key strategies at both the national and local level to regenerate local areas and communities. It also focuses on both physical and social regeneration. The chapter also presents an analysis of various local initiatives to tackle climate change, a key element of the strategy to create sustainable local communities. The issue of climate change is one that has global, national and local ramifications and encapsulates well the idea of the global to the local.
