Tenure integration in new housing developments has been a focus for research over the past 30 years

The investigation focuses on the perceived social benefits of mixed communities. This literature review considers the success of various approaches to locating and distributing social housing in mixed- tenure developments, and answers research questions on issues including spatial configuration, quality of the design and layout of neighbourhoods, the mix of typologies and unit sizes, consideration of tenure mix in the planning process, and getting the management and maintenance strategies right.
