Event description
This panel-discussion will explore how housing policy and practitioners can help deliver better designed homes and neighbourhood

About this Event

How our homes and neighbourhoods are designed has profound implications for societal well-being, the environment, and the sustainability of new housing supply. And while many involved in the housing sector bemoan the quality of much of new housing stock, the political salience of design cannot be ignored. The government introduced a dedicated design chapter into the Revised National Planning Policy Framework, the Building Better Building Beautiful Commission is working on a high profile new report, and some housebuilders are making design a major priority. Against this rapidly developing backdrop, this policy-practice-academia seminar asks;

• How well designed are today’s new homes and neighbourhoods?

• How can policy and practice help deliver better designed homes and neighbourhoods?

Matthew Carmona (UCL) will talk about 'Place value and the ladder of place quality'
