London Housing Standards report published

We were commissioned by the Greater London Authority to review the standards of housing being developed in London in 2009/2010 i.e. before the GLA published their Interim London Housing Design Guide. The purpose of the study was to take a snapshot of pre-Guide housing standards so that future studies would show the effect of the introduction of the new standards contained in the Guide and supported in supplementary planning guidance.

We are very pleased that the GLA have now published our review which makes interesting reading, particularly the levels of compliance with the new space standards.

A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

The GLA Planning team have published other reports which may be of interest on housing density and the Affordable Housing development control Toolkit. These are available here.
