Ordinary Places Profiles

Ongoing project

Through this project, UCL will conduct research on participatory place-based land policy and will develop a series of place-based profiles on policy-making challenges and opportunities in disadvantaged places. It aims to do so through:  

  1. exploring ways to foster conditions for progress in disadvantaged places through co-produced, place-sensitive policies.  
  2. profiling ‘disadvantaged places’, based on a sampling strategy that prioritizes places with installed capacity to work with researchers. The profiles may be drawn from such categories as “left-behind places, “stranded new towns,” and “struggling suburbs.”  
  3. developing place-based profiles that cross-reference economic and social patterns.
