Creating Sustainable Communities in Newcastle Gateshead

Publication Date :: 2010

The aims of this PhD project are to identify and assess the extent to which ‘sustainable communities’ are being developed in the northern urban region of Newcastle-Gateshead and to analyse the key policy challenges confronting such developments. In undertaking this, the project will investigate the role of regional and national policy in shaping local sustainable communities.

In further mapping the history of such policy endeavours within the city-region, the project will aim to document the novel ways in which the theme of ‘sustainable community’ is being interpreted and implemented in a Market Renewal Area and to evaluate the role of demonstration projects and the diffusion of best practice within and beyond the region.
