Promoting design value in public rented housing, an English perspective

This paper is part of a series published by the CaCHE Social Housing Policy Working Group. It provides a brief historical account of the marginalisation of architects, planners (and design value) from housing delivery and research – covering key issues such as procurement, building contracts, fees, post-occupancy evaluation and the dissolution of local authority housing departments – as a precursor to developing a series of policy recommendations for the promotion of design value in public rented housing.

This paper has been published alongside a short policy briefing.
