Abstract

Do you remember the North East before the Metro Centre, or the regeneration of Newcastle Quayside or Grainger Town? Can you imagine Gateshead without the Sage and Baltic, North Tyneside without Royal Quays, Sunderland without St Peter's Riverside or Middlesbrough without Middlehaven? These projects and more were promoted and delivered through the funding and agency of a combination of regeneration programmes and initiatives that sought to diversify the region's economy from 'coal to call (centres)' and 'ships to (computer) chips', all of which have left an enduring physical and economic legacy in the region. Drawing on resources contained in the North East Regeneration Archive (NERA), of which he is the curator, Professor Paul Greenhalgh will offer a property-oriented review of 40 years of physical regeneration in the North East and reflect on what the future might hold in the current regeneration policy void.
