The inner part of the East End of Glasgow has been undergoing regeneration in its current form since 2008, in accord with Glasgow City Council's East End Local Development Strategy and for the main part enacted through the Urban Regeneration Company called Clyde Gateway.  Part of the regeneration programme involved preparing for and enabling the hosting of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, much of which took place in the East End area. Clyde Gateway's regeneration programme is due to last until 2028.  

As part of our study of the impacts of regeneration in the East End (known as GoWell East), this report compares change and progress over time on a range of indicators for the East End with change recorded for several other deprived areas in the city, some subject to area-based regeneration and others not. 

It compares the rate of progress achieved in the East End with that achieved in other regeneration areas, and looks at whether the effects of living in deprived areas has changed as a result of regeneration activity in the East End and elsewhere. 

The study considers the achievements of regeneration towards the end of the first decade of activity.
