There are approximately 10 million terraced houses in the UK.  Over time, several houses and streets have deteriorated to the risk of demolition due to collective neglect and lack of adaptation to modern life. Common issues such as diverse ownership, lack of investment and statutory rigidity continue to prevent universal upkeep unless coordinated intervention is taken.
Our proposal aims to aid homeowners, landlords, councils and housing associations in revitalising inhabited yet neglected streets using a coordinated, sustainable, and economical approach. A series of small, incremental steps of increasing intervention and cost can be implemented to the benefit all involved stakeholders within a realistic time frame and budget. 
This strategy was developed using the Manchester neighbourhood I grew up in as a basis. The project was featured in the August edition of the RIBA Journal 2020.  Read the full commendation here
