The Gateways and Hubs report is a summary of the findings based on a detailed assessment of the socio-economic performance of individual Gateways and Hubs as designated under the National Spatial Strategy (NSS) 2002-2020.

This series of reports serves as both an update and progression of the Gateway Development Index (GDI), which was originally compiled and published in 2009. It builds upon the initial study using previously established domains and constituent indicators (or suitable alternatives where necessary and appropriate), while also expanding the Index to encompass the Hub towns for the first time. Accordingly, the Index is hereinafter referred to as the Gateways and Hubs Development Index (GHDI) 2012.

The Individual Gateways and Hubs reports are part of a series of ten assessing the socio-economic performance of individual Gateways and Hubs as designated under the National Spatial Strategy (NSS) 2002-2020.
