...researching housing needs...

Garston, Liverpool

We worked for two years with the Garston Urban Village Partnership (GUVP) as the community consultants for the Garston-Under-the-Bridge area. The GUVP, comprising Liverpool City Council, South Liverpool Housing, Riverside Housing Association, Liverpool Housing Trust and the Speke Garston Partnership, were working to regenerate a mixed tenure area of some 1,600 households with limited demolition, new build and refurbishment.

PS Consultants provided an impartial consultation service between the GUVP and the residents of the area. We carried out two major household surveys with detailed one to one surveys (with sample sizes of 65% and up to 89% in proposed demolition areas). The results of the surveys shaped the direction of the proposals. Garston-Under-the-Bridge included a mixture of private tenants, social rented tenants and owner-occupiers, as well as businesses and other non-resident stakeholders.
