WP3 - ManchesterResearchers from VivaCity2020 Sustainability Issue Three conducted a literature review and two case studies, Manchester and Sheffield. The researched looked in detail into the night-time economy and crime in these cities and in the literature and recorded their findings. Interviews were conducted with officials, residents and employees involved in the night-time economy, along with conversations and observations. City Council minutes were consulted, and conferences and meetings were attended.

The case studies chart the regeneration of two cities, looking into their pasts, presents and futures to determine extensive recommendations for an improved night-time economy, a lower crime rate and less fear of crime from users of the night time economy and residents of the city centres. These case studies look into issues which can be applicable to cities around the UK, considering a wide range of factors which are important to create a vibrant, pleasant 24-hour urban environment.
