Residential Futures research programme

An example of analysing information.

Analysing an area’s residential offer

This Residential Futures research programme commissioned by The Northern Way explored the relationship between the housing offer and economic competitiveness of city-regions in the north of England.

The project team, led by Tribal’s Urban Studio in association with Arup and University of Birmingham, developed a methodology for analysing and classifying residential neighbourhoods based on the components of range, quality and cost/affordability, as well as their potential to change and respond to future demand driven by the economic growth and aspirations at the strategic level. This involved using urban design techniques alongside more traditional socio-economic and housing data to get under the skin of how neighbourhoods work.
