Understanding change to shape better urban futures

Urban Dynamics

Urban areas are continuously changing: the balance between owners and renters shifts, demographic patterns evolve through migration and gentrification, foreign investment in high-end property coexists with pockets of economic stagnation and homelessness. Our research looks at the drivers and consequences of urban change, addressing topics such as increasing residential density, planning gain, development finance, homeownership, community-led housing and the structure of private renting.
