In October 2017, the Heseltine Institute was commissioned by Onward Homes to evaluate the impact of interventions made by Peak Valley Housing Association in the regeneration of Hattersley and Mottram, a large former council housing estate in Greater Manchester. Our evaluation found that the regeneration interventions have been largely successful and significant progress has been made in meeting the original regeneration objectives. As Onward enters the next phase of the estate’s regeneration, we have identified priority areas that require specific attention, including improvements to the public realm and design and use of the Hub, the new local community centre.
