Tyfu Tai Cymru (TTC) is a five-year housing policy project which aims to provide insightful analysis and fill evidence gaps to support policy progression.

Funded by the Oak Foundation, the project is managed by the Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru and covers three main strands:

  • Building the right homes to meet demand
  • Making sure housing is always a priority for local government
  • Demonstrating housing’s role in keeping people well and healthy.

Linking housing need and desirability. 

This is an invitation to tender for research focusing on how when developing new homes we are not just
meeting housing need but ensuring the homes we develop are desirable to existing communities and
potential tenants.

How can housing professionals ensure that the homes we build satisfy both housing need and desirability
for the existing community and potential tenants. What matters when we develop to ensure community
well being and cohesion.
