No more toxic assets

Will design quality suffer as the housing market recovers from the recession? If design quality wasn’t outstanding in the recent boom period, can we be optimistic about the future? In this pamphlet, CABE chief executive Richard Simmons sets out the steps that local authorities, central government, the Homes and Communities Agency, the industry and CABE need to take to ensure that homes and neighbourhoods are of better quality. It highlights the opportunities that have been created by the recession to do things differently in the future. Embracing these opportunities can only help us to recover from troubled times better and faster.
