About the HCA/ATLAS

The Homes and Communities Agency is the national housing and regeneration agency for England, with a capital investment budget of nearly £7bn. The HCA provides investment for new affordable housing and to improve existing social housing, as well as for regenerating land. The HCA is also the regulator for social housing providers in England.

The Advisory Team for Large Applications (ATLAS) is part of the HCA and provides spatial planning and development support directly to Local Authorities and partners nationwide to help deal with large scale and complex development proposals. Such projects are usually defined as 200 dwellings or more if in a mixed use proposal, or 500 or more in a residential led scheme. The team are also part of the package of support being provided by the HCA to assist with the Accelerated Release of Public Sector Land initiative.
