This report is the product of collaboration between four architectural practices, specialising in the design and delivery of residential and mixed-use neighbourhoods:

HTA Design, Pollard Thomas Edwards (PTE), PRP and Proctor & Matthews Architects.

We have been at the forefront of housing debate, design and delivery for 40 years or more, and are currently delivering a significant number of new homes in England. We are therefore able to take a long view, and to bring experience from across the whole spectrum of housing by type, location and tenure. We are creating homes for all sorts of people: young and old, wealthy and poor, singles and families.

Our regeneration work, engaging with local people, has given us particular insights into what has worked - and failed to work - in the past.

Our case studies include projects for housebuilders, landowners, communities, local authorities, and cross-sector partnerships. They include higher and lower value areas, although we acknowledge that we show more of the former than the latter, and we understand the challenge of achieving quality on low budgets. Our guidance is intended to be universal, and not confined to the more generously funded developments.
