Abstract

Gateshead Council commissioned Sustainable Cities Research Institute (SCRI) and Banks of Wear Community Projects Ltd (BOW) to carry out a housing, renewal and sustainability appraisal of rural areas of Gateshead Borough between May and August 2006.
The work involved:
A desk-based review of relevant strategies and documents.
A door-to-door survey of 2,342 households in Gateshead’s six rural wards (Birtley; Lamesley; Ryton, Crookhill and Stella; Crawcrook and Greenside; Chopwell and Rowlands Gill; and Whickham South and Sunniside). The survey covered approximately 10% of the 23,266 households in these wards.
Consultation with residents and other key stakeholders through focus groups and interviews. This process targeted: harder to reach groups such as younger and aspiring households, people who work, older people, and recent incomers to the area; estate agents, developers and other property professionals; local shopkeepers and traders; local businesses; public sector professionals active in relevant fields such as education, leisure, social and community services; elected members; and transport providers.
SCRI managed the project and delivered the desk-based review and survey, while BOW carried out the consultation with stakeholders as a sub-contractor to SCRI.
