Places to live that are good for people and nature

The places we live should provide us with access to everything we need for a good quality of life. It’s just common sense.

We’re working with local partners and urging the government to create well-designed, vibrant places that people want to live in – with the homes people need, great public transport links and easy access to work, leisure and nature.

We believe that a community voice in planning in the local area is essential.
