Publication dateSeptember 2008 MBC137 Park Life Regional Parks are a new way of encouraging economic and environmental regeneration and can act as a catalyst for generating multiple social, economic and environmental benefits across a large area. Here in the Northwest we currently host 9 regional parks that have been inspired by the work done in Emscher Regional Park in the Ruhr in Germany - a prime example of how designation as a regional park can help encourage investment in urban and environmental regeneration. Gareth Chadwick explores the thinking behind the Northwest’s regional parks and talks to leading proponents of the schemes about what makes regional parks such a potent force for change.

Publication dateJanuary 2008 MBC170 Regional Parks Xchange Baseline Study The purpose of this report was to summarise progress to date on the development of Regional Parks in Northwest England. The report was produced by Andy Routledge at the Mersey Basin Campaign / Regional Parks Xchange with substantial and helpful input from all of the Regional Parks teams. This represented the first time attempt to draw progress on all of the Regional Parks together into a single report. The Northwest Development Agency and the Mersey Basin Campaign worked together on the Regional Parks Xchange project between 2007 and 2010 to support the development of Regional Parks as a vital regeneration tool in the delivery of the Regional Economic Strategy.
