Evaluation of the Mixed Communities Demonstration Projects
CCHPR is part of a consortium evaluating the Mixed Communities Demonstration Projects. These aim to develop comprehensive approaches to neighbourhood renewal through major changes to the housing stock and tenure / income mix, improvements to the environment and action to reduce worklessness and crime. Whilst previous housing and regeneration programmes have included tenure and income diversification, the MCI aims to do this further and faster to achieve genuine and sustainable change in disadvantaged areas.

The Ward Penalty in Birmingham
The Barrow Cadbury Trust approached Land Economy and CCHPR to conduct an investigation into the relationships between race, place and poverty in Birmingham. The study begins from the observation that many of the highly deprived parts of the city, particularly the inner urban areas, are also those with large minority ethnic populations.
The Ward Penalty in Birmingham (Additional Case Studies)
This project extends the previous research on race, place and poverty in Birmingham. This will primarily involve carrying out two additional case studies using the same methods as before, but this time in deprived neighbourhoods in more suburban locations, with a predominantly white British population.
The Working Neighbourhoods Fund Scoping Study
The Working Neighbourhoods Fund was established by Communities and Local Government and the Department for Work and Pensions in 2008. Replacing the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund, it directs funding to 65 local authorities to help them tackle concentrations of worklessness. A team from the Department of Land Economy, under the direction of Prof Peter Tyler and including several members of CCHPR, led the scoping study and interim evaluation of the WNF.
