The Spatial Policy and Analysis Laboratory provides a home for staff and students across The University of Manchester engaged with urban and regional policy research.
Established in 1983 by Professor Brian Robson, our specialist team has developed a reputation for:
- policy-relevant research on the evaluation of area-based urban policy initiatives;
- regional development;
- spatial planning and housing;
- and the measurement of neighbourhood dynamics.
