Sustainable Suburbia

Sustainable Suburbia was a pilot study commissioned by the HCA (now Homes England) during the period the government was considering a family of new towns in the Healthy Towns initiative. The study strove to explore the concept of maintaining, or even increasing, density of housing at the edge of settlement and the role of integrated green infrastructure in delivering walkable-living homes which have a sense of community, biodiversity, and resilience to climate change.
