This report presents the findings from a qualitative study of the occupants of new build housing in two of Glasgow’s Transformational Regeneration Areas (Sighthill and Pollokshaws), looking at the extent to which different elements of the residential environment can support health and wellbeing. 

The report confirms the need for regeneration to be able to provide fully functioning neighbourhoods as part of the regeneration process within a reasonable period of time was evident from participants’ accounts of their daily lives in these newly built homes.
