Case Study: Attwood Green

Robert Rogerson, Sue Sadler

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The community of Attwood Green represents various inner-city council estates in Birmingham and previously known as: the Central Area Estates representing Lee Bank, Woodview, Benmore, Five Ways and Clydesdale Towers. The demise of the City’s manufacturing base over the past 25 years has produced a legacy of empty factories and mass unemployment. Communities within the Central Area Estates have been hit particularly hard by the economic decline and attending social deprivation. The £550 million project involves the demolition of 1400 homes, the refurbishment of 1200 homes and the construction of 1300 new homes for sale and rent. The regeneration project started in 2000 and is expected to be completed by 2014. The regeneration of Attwood Green is viewed by many as an innovative approach to urban renewal and may provide a good practice framework for similar projects.
