As public momentum and political will to address the country’s housing needs grow, we present our latest report Housing Communities: What People Want.
The report seeks to answer two key questions:
1. Which elements of the built environment have the communities and clients we’ve worked with most valued and desired?
2. Which elements of community consultation have the communities and clients we’ve worked with most valued, and how can consultation help to ensure successful built projects?
In the past four years, the % of people who think that housing is the most important issue facing the UK today has doubled.
This report helps us understand how we can move from a NIMBY (Not-In-My-Backyard) to a BIMBY (Beauty-In-My-Back-Yard) attitude towards house-building in the UK.
Housing Communities: What People Want shows how meaningful consultation and better-informed residential development can actually result in more popular housing.
By considering ‘what people want’ first and foremost, we hope we can build the type of communities that people cherish: beautiful, harmonious and enduring.
