A neighbourhood project was set up in 1995 to investigate the problems in Hesters Way. The borough council commissioned consultants to assess the problems in this area and consult with residents and agencies. The resulting report, entitled Hesters Way: A Community Development Plan For the West End of Cheltenham, was created by PiEDA (Project for Economic and Sustainable Development Associates), which recommended the establishment of a resource centre in the area.
