New research published by LSE and the Berkeley Group explores how urban villages could help address the capital's housing crisis.
The report, called 'New London Villages', identifies six characteristics of a real urban village. These include being a place that is unique, mixed, locally driven and designed for social interaction. The authors then tested Kidbrooke Village in the Royal Borough of Greenwich against them and made a series of recommendations for all new major developments in London.
