A study of Nottingham over the past 30 years show there is still a large amount of poverty but that it is being tackled in different ways, according to The Guardian (Society, p8).

The community has developed its own initiatives to improve the area. A scheme to fit gates to back alleys, funded by the city council and run by residents, has helped to cut crime.

Local groups have helped to prepare a bid for a new deal for community funding that empasises the area's potential as a 'vibrant inner-city village'. Officials solutions are very different from the 1960s, when some of the city's poorest districts were simply bulldozed.

A partnership council has now brought together residents, the public sector and local companies. Initially set up by Nottingham City Council, it now has European and lottery funding.

The study is published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation as part of its area regeneration research programme.
