Turley’s Amy Cooper looks at the ZED Pods housing scheme in Bristol as an example of optimising land in our cities
Central government’s refresh of assessing housing need last month has resulted in a substantial uplift in housing delivery targets within 20 urban local authorities. It is the latest reminder of the insurmountable need to optimise all available land within our cities, requiring the sector to find other ways of increasing housing delivery beyond the norm of redeveloping brownfield sites or converting existing buildings.
Our housing sector needs to be building homes quickly and in large quantities on land which is a scarce commodity, all while ensuring the development is of a high quality and is built with the local community in mind. So when new housing projects are brought forward that seem to tick all of the boxes – quality, speed of delivery, scalability, and requiring minimal land – they are often met with interest among stakeholders across our sector.
