Create Streets is a non-partisan social enterprise and independent research institute focusing on the built environment.
Large areas of London are taken up by unpopular, socially segregated, low density but high rise off-street multi-storey estate. We encourage the creation of more and better urban homes with terraced streets of houses and apartments rather than complex multi-storey buildings.
Terraced houses can provide the homes we need to solve the housing crisis. We support reform of the planning system to make it more effectively responsive to what people like in the built environment and campaign for community-led building and locally-supported estate regeneration to deliver homes that are popular and stand the test of time.
