    Abstract

    The author looks beyond the veneer that is the new modern image of Salford and the spotlight that was shone on the area by hosting elements of the 2002 Commonwealth Games. In the light of the BBC locating to the area, attempts to investigate the extent to which those inner-city deep rooted problems remain. The author used a combined approach using current academic text as the backdrop for interviews with the local authority figures and focus group, formed of a variety of community stakeholders. The output from the interviews was then used to inform a bespoke community attitude survey conducted by the author on the streets of Salford. With this, it is concluded that although Salford Quays has delivered a ‘urban renaissance’ of the former docks, the evidence collated suggests that the redevelopment has provided ‘more of a drip’ than ‘a trickle’ of the benefits to surrounding community.
