We want to create change in the way the housing industry acquires, plans, builds and manages new homes and communities to improve people’s quality of life.
To start with, we are carrying out research to find out what affects people’s quality of life. We are using this evidence to build a framework to demonstrate how improvements to our homes and communities can improve our quality of life.
Throughout, we will seek ways to engage with the public to understand sentiments at a community level, and to create a system whereby the public can assess individual developments based on its impact on their quality of life.
Using this research and thought leadership, we will promote a new model of development. We will work with developers, local authorities and housing associations to demonstrate how adopting our framework will create long-term social and economic benefits.
