Ministry offers £50k for document that will complement Scruton’s Building Beautiful Commission

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is seeking consultants to draw up a design manual for new homes, underpinning its strategy of winning public support for development that is “high standard”.

Reducing local opposition to new housing development is seen as crucial for ramping up delivery to the 300,000-homes-a-year level required to address decades of under-delivery.

MHCLG said it was seeking a built environment or third sector design consultancy for a £50,000 contract to provide urban design, architectural and landscape skills for the creation of a new design manual that will be hosted on the Gov.uk website.
