New Communities: Realising the ambition

Successive governments have promoted new community developments, as the key to a new sustainable way of life. However, all too frequently, new developments are either not realised at all, or are planned, designed, and delivered sub optimally leading to unsustainable outcomes.

Prior + Partners and the Urban Land Institute UK have joined together to explore the reasons why new communities often do not live up to their potential and what changes need to take place for the ambition that they present to be realised. 

To inform our research we are hosting a series of roundtables with industry leaders to inform a document to be published in the autumn, setting out key recommendations on what changes are needed, to influence future practice in this area.
