  • To what extent has a named urban management project been successful
    • Named urban management projects and therefore locations of investigation
      • Peterborough
        • Ongoing and planned new regeneration and management projects, such as Fletton Quays
          • HOWEVER - not much data available on the new management schemes, primary data would be hard to find, it would be extrapolating to predict their success
        • Many past urban development and development schemes in the area, especially in terms of retail parks and moving from one industry (usually primary or secondary manufacturing) to another (usually tertiary retail)
          • HOWEVER - quantity and concentration of these types of management may make it hard to focus the investigation on one project in one time period as it has been a largely continous and holistic process over the course of many decades. This could compromise the depth of research and ability to find relevant data to support a conclusion
        • Ability to collect primary data such as EQS, LUS and RVS fairly easily as I live close to city center
          • Difficulty in focusing study in one area that has been managed and regenerated, as there have been so many individual projects
        • History of deprivation in certain areas and unemployment - able to investigate the success of projects
      • Cardiff Bay
        • Concluded management project of the CBDC with accessible data and plans around it, as well as the project being focused on a specfic area
          • Secondary data availiable surrounding the project, as it is finsihed there are statistics assessing its achievements both in a social sense and economic sense
        • Primary data collected on field trip to Cardiff Bay, with a range of data including EQS, LUS and RVS as well as questionnaires about the various successes of the project asked to those in the area (demographic information on the candidates also taken)
          • As the project ended fairly recently, there is clear evidence of its successes and failures, therefore data is able to be collected and related somewhat directly to the management scheme
        • History of deprivation, socioeconomic and demographic issues - able to investigate the success of projects
          • Clear goals were set out by the CBDC project in order to solve these demographic issues - investigation has clear targets of assessing the success of the project
    • What data can i use to further my investigation and develop a conclusion?
      • Primary data
        • Field work from Cardiff  Bay Area
          • EQS, LUS, RVS
          • Sampling from multiple key streets
          • Questionnaires with demographic info
            • opinions on management
      • Secondary data
        • Media
          • Reports on success from BBC, Wales online etc.
          • Political interviews
        • National statistics database
        • Property websites
    • What defines a successful urban management project?
      • Demographic indicators
        • Social
          • Environmental quality
          • deprivation
          • social mobility
          • housing quality
          • opportunities to work
        • Economic
          • Secondary research available online from national statistics database
            • crime rates
            • employment
            • measures of deprevation
            • house prices
        • Management of demographic issues covered by key points in specification so theory and knowledge would be able to be applied to reach a well rounded conclusion
      • Environmental indicators
        • Ability to use EQS data collected at Cardiff Bay or collected from elsewhere, along with government reports on environmental quality
          • This secondary data would be readily available
          • However - we have largely focused on studying demographic issues in our course so applying knowledge and theory and therefore coming to a well informed solution about a particular area of success would be better done in terms of demographic issues
    • Have the benefits of the urban management project been felt equally? Were there winners and losers?
      • a solution solving demographic issues that benefits a large proportion of an area
        • What defines a successful urban management project?
          • Demographic indicators
            • Social
              • Environmental quality
              • deprivation
              • social mobility
              • housing quality
              • opportunities to work
            • Economic
              • Secondary research available online from national statistics database
                • crime rates
                • employment
                • measures of deprevation

      • Distinct differences in felt effects
        • Bute Town vs regenerated areas
        • Many media reports have commented on the remaining inequalities
