This ICLRD research study team has developed case studies on six different communities to better understand the linkages between mixed income/integrated developments and emerging policy agendas for promoting sustainable communities. The six sites include:
- Northern Ireland: Spring Farm Estate, Antrim; Gobnascale/Irish Street Area, Derry/Londonderry; and Carran Cresent, Enniskillen.
- Republic of Ireland: Cranmore Estate, Sligo; Mahon Estate, Cork; and Adamstown, Dublin.
The research consisted of writing up over 100 interviews and reworking a comprehensive literature review to include up-to-date information relating to the downturn in the housing market and key policy issues relating to the research topic. The study was launched at the annual Conference of the Isles in the Slieve Donard Hotel, Newcastle, County Down on 7-8 May 2009.
