Creating positive economic communities
Funded by The Local Trust, Prof Pete Tyler and Dr Gemma Burgess will lead a team of researchers in reviewing how positive economic change might be sustainably created in communities with a population of 5,000 to 15,000, where there is sufficient local involvement and adequate long term support.
Leasehold and Freehold Charges
This research, funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), will examine the issues of the levels of leasehold and freehold charges being charged, and the variation within these, in order to inform the development of the Ministry's leasehold reform policy and future programme.
Digital Nomads
The aim of this research, funded by the Centre for Digital Built Britain, is to understand how digital technology is being used to enable new forms of shared living in the private rented sector. With a focus on the use of digital technology in shared rented accommodation, the research will investigate the application of digital technology in three areas: access to properties, management of properties and lived experience.
Parenting in a house share (ESRC IAA)
Contract research for Commonweal Housing explored different types of shared housing available for non-resident parents and investigated their experiences of parenting their children whilst living in shared housing. This ESRC Impact Acceleration Account project will significantly increase the wider impact of this research, and will focus on the experience of fathers.
Uptake of digital tools in the UK house building sector
Our mini-project for the Centre for Digital Built Britain looked at the uptake of digital tools in the UK house building sector. It provides a ‘state of the nation’ report into the opportunities and barriers to the uptake of the digital tools, standards and processes that are collectively known as Building Information Modelling (BIM).

This project is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund.
Modelling the impact of taxation reform on the PRS
Significant policy changes affecting the private rented sector have the potential for a serious impact on the centre as the majority of landlords face increased taxation. The Residential Landlords Association commissioned research to develop an economic model of the finances of PRS landlords and property investors in order to identify the wider impact of the recent taxation reforms.
Shared Ownership Plus: a review of progress and potential
Thames Valley commissioned a review of their Shared Ownership Plus scheme, a shared ownership scheme which offers greater flexibility in terms of staircasing (buying further shares) for shared owners.

Cambridge City Council and Oxford City Council commissioned this study to inform planning policy with regard to the provision of student accommodation, and its impact upon housing need, within the two cities.
Downsizing and moving in later life - new build housing or existing stock?
This research explored why older households move in later life, the size of property they moved to and why they choose either new build housing or existing stock. It considered what the house building sector can learn from their experience and what opportunities that this presents to the house building sector.
Evaluation of the Reimagining Rent Programme
The Young Foundation has commissioned CCHPR to undertake an evaluation of the Reimagining Rent Programme, assessing its effectiveness in supporting participating innovations to grow and achieving wider impact.
