Case Studies

The theoretical framework developed at both the strategic and local scales (see Method section), underpins its application to real-life case studies. The research involves four case study cities and their outer areas: Cambridge, London, Tyne and Wear, and Bristol. The case studies are being carried out with the involvement of the non-academic partners and local stakeholders.

Each case study includes systematic testing of alternative strategic and local design options, to assess its sustainability and contrasting it with the sustainability levels achievable by the existing trend development patterns.

The case studies will provide first-hand knowledge of the existing practical constraints and barriers to sustainable development, ensuring that the Best Practice Guidance is practicable and caters to the needs of various types of outer-city areas.
