ULI UK New Communities report cover
Report Summary:

Successive UK governments have sought to encourage the delivery of new villages, towns, and cities. Over the long term, these large-scale new community developments can help address the UK's housing crisis, as well as creating opportunities for fantastic new places to live.

However, despite the intent, these new developments often never materialize, or when delivered, fail to live up to their promised potential. Drawing on roundtable discussions with UK leaders in new community development, this report seeks to identify the key attributes of inspirational new communities, understand the issues and challenges associated with their delivery, and identify the principles and foundations for success.

The publication of this report is the start of a year-long program to inspire and create positive change in the way in which these communities are planned, designed, and delivered, so that the new communities of the future become the great places they have the potential to be.
