About the Book
Development & Regeneration contains the images commissioned to create an image library that captures the story of the place, current appearance and character of four urban centres within the Bath & North East Somerset Council district: Bath, Keynsham, Midsomer Norton and Radstock.
This photographic library provides a series of warts and all images before regeneration takes place, and to provide existing context for the emerging regeneration/development proposals for each site.
Important features within the project include existing buildings, access routes and road system, street furniture, areas of open or redundant space, surrounding context including geographical features such as rivers and green space, any significant features of heritage and characteristic architectural detailing, and any significant features of decline.
Ultimately, over time as each regeneration scheme is developed and completed, the photographs will inform the before sequence in a series of before and after images.
