Hillside Estate, North Huyton

After a number of years in decline, Hillside, along with other nearby estates, was included in a major redevelopment programme which began in 2004. This involved the decanting of residents, clearance and rebuilding. Repeated delays in the programme resulted in partial clearance and dereliction alongside newly built properties often occupied by incomers.

Photo-Narratives

A series of photo-narratives based on the short films mixing resident commentary with photographs and video stills to explore the impact of the redevelopment on the local environment.

The commentary is taken from audio recordings of one-to-one interviews and group discussions held with local residents in the autumn of 2007 and 2009.
