Create Streets is a social enterprise and independent research institute focusing on the built environment.
We encourage the creation of more urban homes with terraced streets of houses and apartments rather than complex multi-storey buildings.
Our main focus is London. We are campaigning for a London-wide programme of building and estate regeneration which could deliver the homes London needs while building homes that are popular and stand the test of time.

Our key points are that:
Neighbourhoods should have the right to decide which standards they apply
Standards should not be set so as to prevent normal terraced streets

Not just multi-storey estates

Create Streets call on the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to tackle red tape if he wants to see his vision of better quality housing realised. You can download our new report here and the press release here.
Red tape in London stops us building popular high density terraced streets
