So my enquiry question I'm planning to do is: 'to what extent do people perceive the regeneration of the olympic park as successful in Stratford?'

I want to plan out the methodology but how would I go about measuring perceived success, like what questions would I ask and what quantitative/qualitative methods would you reccomend?

would probably recommend doing google form survey. are you local to london? you could send a google survey out to your school - I did a similar thing asking about perception vs reality of my local area. some questions you could ask is like what adjectives you would associate with it etc but it depends how you are measuring success - is that socially, environmentally or economically? another thing to look at is newspaper coding for qualitative data and you could use census and crime data for quantitative data

I'm going to be asking local people that live in Stratford near the olympic park, I live in paddington but yes that could be good. However, people in my school don't know much about the regeneration of the olympic park so I don't think I would be able to get useful data from that.
I'm focusing on the social and economic success

I want to plan out the methodology but how would I go about measuring perceived success, like what questions would I ask and what quantitative/qualitative methods would you reccomend?
If you want do a Questionnaire, I would ask the following
1 - Crime Levels in the Area - how save are you?
2 - Good Leisure / Opportunities
3 - Cost of Living
4 - Environment
* - Note, come up with a formal , ethical question. This questionnaire has to be taken in a formal and serious way. I am sure you know what to do from here.

Things I would recommend you do to beside a questionnaire :
- Do an Environmental Quality Survey [Physical / Built Environment ]
- Take Pictures of the new buildings and annotate them - something very similar is shown in the Example NEA (if your doing AQA )
- Count the amount of litter on streets and green spaces available [Environment]
- Talk about how the Stratford Station has created another LEVEL OF ACCESBILITY to the Town. The Stratford Station is provided by buses going from Chingford/Walthamstow/Leyton/Ilford etc... , London Underground (Central / Jubilee ) , Tfl Rail , London Overground , Mainline Trains connecting Stratford to other cities outside of London [Transport / Economic]
- Use a Noise Meter App to measure the sound [Environment]
- Talk about how Westfield has attracted a lot of people to shop there - count the people that come in for a certain period of time [Economic]
- Check for any Estate Agents and try and look at the Prices - could the regeneration caused the lower-class people to leave this area and make the area unaffordable [Give a downside]


Good luck - I hope you do well in your NEA.

thank you for your advice, my only concern is that I'm looking at the local residents' perceptions of success following regeneration so by doing some of the examples above myself I feel I won't be answering the question.

I see . Which examples exactly do you feel you won't be answering the question?

Also which exam board are you doing?

Hi!
I'm doing a similar study question, and I am doing mine on Westfield. My hypotheses are:
Westfield has stimulated economic development within the White City area
Residents feel as though Westfield has improved the built environment
Westfield has created an attractive and usable built environment


My methods for the first one are interviewing local businesses to see the effect of Westfield, and doing a survey where I find out why people are in the area and how far they've travelled (for sphere of influence)
For the second hypotheses I am doing a quality decay index in residential streets, and also interviewing residents
For the 3rd I did environmental quality surveys in and around Westfield, and I also annotated before and after photos.
I will also be using secondary data for all of my hypotheses e.g crime rate, house prices

Hope this helps
