The Brent Cross Town baseline report presents innovative wellbeing research undertaken between January 2021 and January 2022, in partnership with a public-private Joint Venture between Argent Related and Barnet Council. The work was led by the University of Manchester (UoM) and Buro Happold, drawing on transdisciplinary and mixed-method approaches. All data was collected prior to the delivery of the major Brent Cross Town delivery stages, from local people who already live in the Brent Cross area. The vast majority of whom are expected to remain in the area, as the regeneration project is built and managed into the future.
In 2021, following recommendations set out within an overarching Brent Cross Town sustainability strategy, the pledge on the opposite page was made.
In response to pledge this, two main aims were pursued involving:
■ Rapid co-definition of a new Flourishing Index, that is based on the latest science but is representative of local voices and circumstances – balancing democratic and technocratic inputs;
■ A first round of baseline data capture before January 2022, using a mixed-methods approach, drawing upon vanguard analogue and digital sensor and data technologies.
