Bristol is the sixth largest city in England and is one of eight 'core' cities. Bristol provides a particularly interesting example of a city which is currently relatively economically successful in the British context. However, there are pressures of growth in the city-region, particularly linked to sustainability and affordability, sitting alongside long-standing social problems and associated decline which remain entrenched in parts of the city. Bristol as a post-industrial city continues to witness ambitious urban regeneration projects in the city centre and Harbourside, continued expansion of the northern fringe edge city, and ongoing policy interventions targeted at the most deprived areas of the city. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
