Many of our towns and cities are experiencing a significant demand for housing, however, there is little analysis on how the scale and location of new housing developments impacts upon the broader sustainability of settlement patterns.
The RTPI is seeking an external supplier to conduct research on the spatial implications of housing development in a number of the UK's fastest growing city-regions. The purpose of this research is answer the following questions:
Is new development generally located in the right places with respect to employment growth and sustainable commuting patterns?
Is new development of a sufficient scale to support the efficient provision of infrastructure?
The deadline for applications is 5pm on 19 June 2015.
Tenders are invited from planning, development and research consultancies, RTPI accredited planning schools, other university-based teams/departments, and other appropriate organisations. Collaborations between organisations are welcome.
