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 (though not exclusive) 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.

We have had three policy victories so far.
The 2014 Budget followed our suggestion and created a £150m estate regeneration fund. The prospectus follows many Create Streets principles and cites Create Streets
In April 2014 the Government commissioned Savills to investigate the potential of our proposals
In December 2013, the GLA followed our suggestion and relaxed standard 3.2.5
We were cited in the Farrell Review (p78)
Not just multi-storey estates

We were delighted to announce recently our alternative vision for the Mount Pleasant site where a street-based approach creates more homes, more value, a better place and supportive neighbours. You can read more about it on our blog or in the Evening Standard. Or watch the movie here !
A scheme that would provide more homes, more value & local support
