This project was initiated by the North East Improvement and Efficiency Partnership (NEIEP) following interest from regional local authorities in the evaluation of the impact of large scale regeneration initiatives. The project therefore centres on the Greater Eston area in Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council. The study evaluates the potential to establish a longitudinal study to monitor the performance and impact of the Greater Eston Master Plan and provides a commentary on how the techniques recommended in this area could be applied to other regeneration initiatives elsewhere. The project was commissioned through the Institute for Local Governance and was jointly funded by them and the RIEP. The project has been undertaken on behalf of the two funders by a team of researchers from the Sustainable Cities Research Institute at the School of the Built and Natural Environment, Northumbria University, and the Policy Research Group at the University of Durham, working with Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council. The following report sets out the project that has been undertaken to establish and test the potential to establish a longitudinal study in Greater Eston and in particular the South Bank area which although situated at the northern edge of Greater Eston, immediately adjacent to the A66 (see Appendix A for location and delineation of the study area) lies at the heart of the Greater Eston Master Plan. A separate report has been compiled summarising the analysis and findings of the secondary and primary data collection that has been undertaken in the South Bank. The aim of the project was ‘to establish the baseline position and design a robust strategy for a 25 year longitudinal assessment of the impact of the delivery of a large scale regeneration project: the Greater Eston Regeneration Master Plan’.
