    Abstract

    The main purpose of this research study is to evaluate the impact of urban regeneration on local communities with a specific case-study of the estate regeneration of Weston in Southampton, UK. Providing an insight of the effects of regeneration whether positive or negative from the intended beneficiaries of the initiative.
    The study recognises that they have been evaluations of regeneration initiatives and that Her Majesty's Treasury's Green Book (2005) sets out a guidance on how these evaluations are to be carried out. So far, however, there has been little focus on t:he wider impacts of an initiative on the community. ln terms of whether the communities benefited from jobs created or how, who was directly affected by the initiative. Kintrea argues that the difficulties in making assessments of impacts has been the shortcomings of data and concludes that over the past years the policies and programmes have failed to resolve the complex problems that regeneration initiatives have been initiated to resolve.
    The study starts by defining the key terms in the study, urban regeneration, evaluate, impact, urban areas and urban policy. A brief synopsis of the context of regeneration and the policies. In addition, the study intends take the data gathered on the direct effects/impacts of the case study to set a baseline or a benchmark of the impacts of initiative targets.
