This report puts forward a new policy approach that incentivises developers to propose and build housing schemes that are beautiful and diverse.

In particular, this report argues that the Government should define what is meant by ‘good design’, as required by Chapter 12 of the revised National Planning Policy Framework 2019 (NPPF). This report also argues that such a definition will incentivise the building of beautiful places that bring new and long-lasting value to the local area, rather than relying on existing economic and social infrastructure in the local area.
