We have partnered with one of the leading UK charities to help tackle homelessness.
The Government had implemented a target of 300,000 homes to be delivered by the mid 2020’s. In the year 2019/20 there was a shortfall of 56,000 homes. 50 out of 309 English local authorities have delivered less than 75 percent of their housing requirements in the three years to March 2021.
Urban Intelligence has the solution: using data science to create a smarter planning system. Using our software will accelerate the scope and speed at which policy compliant sites can be identified. This leads to greater transparency; encouraging the right development, in the right place and including small sites that might often get missed. Our automated viability functions, including a predicted tenure requirement breakdown provide greater local authority knowledge and leverage when negotiating with developers.
We believe that by developing a system that maximises the number of sites local authorities can identify for future housing development and empowering them with the evidence they need to deliver a transparent planning process it will lead to the development of sufficient, well-connected homes, including much-needed affordable homes.
By supplying affordable housing providers such as housing associations and government bodies with an efficient and cost effective land identification and assessment service that works to highlight the land they, or other public sector organisations already own, will assist these organisations in the development of robust, thorough and sustainable strategic planning to deliver on their housing targets and other corporate objectives.
We have an exciting announcement to make on this later this month! So watch this space for more information.
