Social Sustainability

Social Sustainability

By Richard Holmes , July 2012

Case studies from Gloucestershire

Richard Holmes looks at the social dimensions of new settlements, focusing on community growth in Kingsway Village and Coopers Edge in Gloucestershire. 

The research used the Sustainability Framework, commissioned by the Housing & Community Agency, to identify common challenges and catalysts that have stimulated community growth.

Supervised by the Young Foundation, Richard’s research report was launched at an event at Coopers Edge Primary School - located at the heart of one of the settlements looked at in the research - on 17 July 2012.

Richard’s research included a short film and a published report. Further information about social sustainability can be found at www.social-life.co.uk
