Video tribute to Wester Hailes regeneration published
September 8 2009
Produced by Andrew Crow of Event Video Services the flick illustrates how two decades of regeneration has transformed one of the cities largest housing estates and aims to convince politicians of the value local organisations bring to regeneration.
A range of tenant interviews were undertaken for the project where locals highlight improvements made to the area in a bid to dispel lingering memories of a less salubrious past.
Key to the turnaround has been investment in landscaping to replace oppressive greys with floral patterns, tree plantings, gardens and open space.
