They must be places where we can offer more space, more time and more choice, and add something positive to the area and those that live there: shops, services, places to play and relax. They must have the potential to become a Get Living neighbourhood: a brilliant big city neighbourhood, that enhances life and lifestyles without compromising the future.
We’re proud of our homes: the architecture, the designer furniture, the light and space. But homes are only part of what makes a place to live brilliant.

Things that help our residents do more every day, improve wellbeing and live city life to the full.
