Established in 2001, Housing Vision undertakes original and applied research and policy reviews for clients throughout the public and private sectors. In 2010, we were appointed to the Homes and Communities Agency’s Multi-disciplinary Panel and in 2013, we completed our 150th project, a survey of new uses for a church threatened with closure.
We specialise in conducting and evaluating housing market, housing needs and social and community assessments. We have completed studies all levels from parish and neighbourhood to district and sub-regional.
Latest update: we delivered our 150th project at the end of 2013 - at no cost to the client!
We are a dynamic, flexible and multi-disciplinary team - committed to meeting our clients’ needs.
We work regularly with specialist partners and advisers - to ensure we always have the right team for the job.
We subject all our work to a ‘so what?’ test - to ensure that research and analysis are understood and conclusions are meaningful.
We learn from our projects - by seeking feedback from every client (read what they have said below).
What our clients say
I am somebody who tends not to have a very high regard for consultants but I can say that the report produced by Housing Vision was very, very good. It was clear, could be read and understood by a wide range of people, it managed to deliver information that satisfied both the learned and those representing the community.
Alison Boyle, Project Steering Group, Strategic Housing Market Assessment for the Northern Peninsula of the South West
HVC's experience and knowledge was invaluable in assisting the sub-regional partnership consider and fundamentally rethink its structure and future direction. The skilled way they approached the work we commissioned meant we would definitely call upon their services again.
Phil Street, Project Manager, Accelerating the Delivery of Affordable Housing in the West Midlands South HMA
The most successful aspect of the project was the structure and presentation of the report. It was logical and its outcomes were fully supported by appropriate research and evidence In conclusion an excellent piece of work delivered to programme and on budget. I have no hesitation in recommending HVC to others wishing to undertake such research.
Mike Brown, Chief Executive, Bromsgrove District Housing Trust, Housing Market Assessment for the Bromsgrove District
One of the most successful aspects of the project was the working relationship and communication; the sense of joint working and good engagement. This helped with the ownership of the project.
Pauline Warner, Project Manager, Strategic Housing Market Assessment for the Northern Peninsula of the South West
The most successful aspect of Phase 1 of the project was turning the brief into a practical document; the indicators and a way of looking in a more strategic way at the sheltered schemes.
