Create Streets is a non-partisan social enterprise and independent research institute focusing on the built environment.

 

We encourage the creation of more and better urban homes with terraced streets of houses and apartments rather than complex multi-storey buildings.

 

We support reform of the planning system to make it more effectively responsive to what people like in the built environment and campaign for community-led building and locally-supported estate regeneration to deliver homes that are popular and stand the test of time.
