Nick Bailey, Anna Haworth, Tony Manzi, Primali Paranagamage and Marion Roberts

A comprehensive guide to planning and consultation issues around mixed income communities.

This guide explores how to create attractive and well-managed places that meet the needs of all sections of the community.  Drawing on the latest research, and featuring nine case study areas, it includes detailed guidance on:

  • developing a strategy and negotiating the planning process; 
  • good practice in masterplanning, design, layout and long-term financial viability; 
  • how stakeholders can collaborate effectively and ensure that local residents are fully involved at all stages; 
  • how barriers to the development of sustainable communities might be overcome.

The guide explores all types of mixed income communities, from the diversification of single-tenure inner-city estates to greenfield development on the urban fringe.
