Housing Market Renewal creates attractive, vibrant and diverse areas where people want to live, transforming neighbourhoods, not just for now but for the future. The emphasis is on “place-making” rather than just house building. Achieving high standards of design on new development is a crucial part of this.

Good design helps improve quality of life, providing homes that meet the current needs of residents and yet can be adapted to meet changing circumstances, safe and attractive streets, well-made buildings and public spaces that change the perceptions of an area.

By providing additional funding, we are able to work with our developers to deliver higher standards of design. Robust processes and policies are in place to make sure each of our developments meet our demanding standards.
