UK cities need to offer good quality, affordable housing that is well connected to jobs, shops and services. But the housing and transport challenges facing UK cities vary significantly. For example, in some cities with strong economies house prices are relatively high and there is an urgent need to build more homes and improve overcrowded infrastructure. In other cities, where demand is relatively lower, quality of housing stock may be a more pressing challenge. Our research looks at how different types of cities can overcome the distinctive housing and transport challenges they face where policies are often decided nationally.
