Social sustainability mapping for Castle Vale

Social Life was commissioned by Castle Vale Community Housing to map selected indicators from Social Life’s Community Dynamics data for the Castle Vale Estate and surrounding area. The aim was to help understand the impact of over 20 years of investment in the area, and to feed into work to develop future prioirities for the Estate.

This report includes maps of data predicting levels of residents’ sense of belonging, and the strength of local social relationships in Castle Vale.

These factors have been selected from Social Life’s Community Dynamics predicative data. This reveals aspects of social sustainability giving fresh perspectives on the residents and communities living on the estate and the surrounding area. The data is predictive, it shows expected levels of belonging and the strength of local relationships.

Our aim was to explore how this kind of data can be used to support future decision making, and community engagement, in the Castle Vale area.
