We prepare development briefs for all sites that we will develop with HMR funding. They explain the context of a site and guide developers on the type of development that is appropriate. This includes the housing mix that is expected, design standards, local authority planning and other policy requirements, consultation processes that should be undertaken and communication and marketing obligations.
As developments are receiving HMR funding, briefs also outline the project development process, set out what is required by the developer at each stage and explain the role and requirements of public sector partners. We have developed a brief template to make sure we cover all of these elements.
