About the toolkit

“Planning should be about place making for everyone, creating local environments and housing which meet people’s needs over the long term.  Central to this ambition is accessible housing. This toolkit makes a vital contribution to the core goal of people focused planning and is essential reading for plan makers and those in development management.”

Dr Hugh Ellis. Head of Policy, TCPA
