Improving the quality of HCA funded housing, which not only includes mainstream housing but also a range of other client groups, is something we are passionate about. It is one of the statutory objectives of the Homes and Communities Agency.

From housing for older people and supported housing for vulnerable groups to refurbishment of existing homes - a wealth of design guidance already exists. The HCA therefore commissioned a review to help investment partners, project commissioners, local authorities and designers decide which advice would be most useful for their project.

The results of the review are contained in this document. Carried out by Levitt Bernstein and PRP architects, the purpose of the exercise was to bring together the range of existing guidance and to direct partners to the most relevant design guidance for a specific development type or user group.
