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.
