The studies also explore the impact of, and level of participation in, local regeneration initiatives. Other reports in the series look at East London, Liverpool and Teesside. A separate report offers a comprehensive overview of all four projects. This particular study explores the perceptions, expectations and aspirations of residents on two estates in Nottingham.
In addition to themes common to all four projects, it examines the effectiveness of earlier initiatives; the part informal social networks and community groups can play in regeneration partnerships; and the particular opportunities and difficulties faced by minority ethnic groups.
