From the Editor

As an architect, I think three of the key words which apply to homes are space, quality and design. It’s patently clear now that house builders are unlikely to improve quality unless they forced to and that means regulations because in their minds quality (even good design) costs more money.

Extraordinary as it may seem, the trigger for change may not come from Government but from the public itself because buyers have suddenly become choosy and will not accept just anything, using their concerns about energy costs and comfort as the big sticks with which to beat the builder. Clearly, it’s all going to be change at the sharp end.

Speaking of change, we've got some exciting plans in the pipeline for Housing Specification itself. Our housing blog is a brand new online hub dedicated to housing news, discussion and debate. Focusing on industry issues, the blog will explore the socio-political factors that impact Britain's housing market today. We're also venturing into the Twittersphere. Follow us @HousingSpec for regular news and feature updates.
