Conservation and regeneration: Complementary or conflicting processes? The case of grainger town, Newcastle upon Tyne

Lookup NU author(s): Professor John Pendlebury



This article briefly explores the development of the relationship between conservation and regeneration from a conservation perspective, and specifically the role of English Heritage, before focusing on a case study of the Grainger Town area of Newcastle upon Tyne. Grainger Town is a part of the city centre of major historic importance and subject to a multi-agency regeneration initiative. It is one of the flagship projects of English Heritage in terms of regeneration and partnership working (English Heritage, 1998, 1999). Using documentary material and interviews with a wide range of stakeholders in the area, the article explores the degree to which conservation and regeneration have been perceived as complementary objectives in Grainger Town. Interviews quoted were carried out as part of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded project 'Urban Governance, Institutional Capacity and Regenerating City Centres'.
