Sunderland, lying on the north east coast of England, is the largest city in the north east of England. Having historically suffered from its proximity to the Tyneside conurbation centred around Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sunderland has a long and illustrious history and the city is an interesting one to examine in a City Profile in its own right. In the first instance the legacy of the Tyne and Wear Development Corporation regeneration initiatives from the late 80s and early 90s has been the piecemeal development of unrelated and un-linked projects along the river Wear. Sunderland Arc, the urban regeneration company formed in 2002 by a local partnership to regenerate the city, has had a much broader focus and remit with a clear mandate for redevelopment. This profile examines recent regeneration initiatives and a move from a piecemeal development of disparate sites to partnership working and a more holistic view of regeneration activities, and is a good example of some of the innovative ways in which smaller cities are seeking to re-image and regenerate in response to economic crises.
