At Project NERA we have digitised documents to create this archive of England's regeneration projects.

Our collection so far includes documents from the many regeneration agencies that operated in the North East of England from the 1990s onwards.

The archive includes images, reports, films and books. Loans of hard copies may be possible for students and researchers.
