2015 is the 25th Anniversary of the Gateshead Garden Festival and the 10th Anniversary of the Staiths South Bank project winning the Best Large-scale Housing Scheme of the Year Award; it represents the North East’s only Building for Life Silver Award Category, and also achieved the highest mark in a CABE study about the quality of housing developments. The recession appears to be over at last … for the moment! – and large-scale urban regeneration projects within the North East and nationally are under consideration once again. It is particularly timely therefore to overview this Award winning scheme and list its qualities and its challenges.
