Planning a HAPPI family

Cover Viewpoint 86

This Housing LIN Viewpoint no 86 offers a planner’s eye view of how the planning system could contribute to the meeting of genuine housing needs in an efficient and timely way.

Hot on the heels of the recent Housing White Paper, this viewpoint seeks to show how the provision of small dwellings could be the trigger for satisfying the economic, social and environmental aspects of housing supply and demand. It makes the link to HAPPI designs and the opportunity that accommodation built to these principles should result in sufficient family size houses being made available by those older households moving to smaller properties.
