Health

We all have a right to live in homes that are healthy. That means they are warm, free from damp and mould, with enough space (indoor and out) and access to natural light. But as the lockdown has shown, it also means homes that are adaptable to our changing circumstances, as we grow and change ourselves. And it means neighbourhoods that are designed to encourage walking and cycling, as well as playing sport.

  • Space standards: Well-designed and built homes with adequate space, that can adapt to the changing needs of their occupants, for example to allow home working or changes in family circumstances.
  • Warmth and Comfort: Homes that are secure & warm, with good levels of natural light and ventilation, that won’t overheat as the climate changes.
  • Opportunity for recreation: Places nearby for exercise, cycling. walking and playing sport.
