Abstract: This CABE publication, issued as a download from CABE’s website at the end of 2009, picks up the call for changes in ‘the way housing is delivered in Britain’ that shaped the design body’s earlier 2009 report No More Toxic Assets: ‘the housing boom was all about chasing volumes and shareholder return... [while] far too often, delivering poor quality’. With the housebuilding industry beginning to find its feet again, CABE commissioned this collection of views ‘to fuel a debate about the future for housing in the next economic cycle’, and to explore new routes and models to achieve a housing quality and quantity ‘so conspicuously lacking to date’.
