This paper discusses skills for improving the engagement of the communities in delivering the neighbourhood facilities for the housing market renewal in Northwest England. It integrates the concept of sustainable communities that recognises the additional skills that are needed by the Built Environment professionals who are involved in the delivery process. In doing so, research findings from an exploratory case study undertaken at Bank Top, England are discussed. It identifies gap between the United Kingdom’s government intentions and local communities’ expectations. The conflict leads to the need for professionals to highlight issues on skills for improving the engagement with the communities in the delivery process. This paper concludes that skills for engaging communities are essential to be acquired by relevant professionals if the objectives of sustainable communities’ agenda are to be met.
