Introduction

´╗┐Describe the fieldwork and research you would undertake in order to examine the success of rebranding solutions in an urban area (15) For my research I would collect this secondary data by looking online on past and present blogs or forums to see opinions of residents and visitors about their views on the area before rebranding and after the rebranding of the area and how it was a success or a failure.
