We're working with Carbon Co-op in this BEIS funded project to develop local supply chains for whole house retrofit across Greater Manchester. This is one of six pilot projects in England. It aims to develop localised capacity to deliver retrofit works and inform future government policy and approaches.

URBED have been appointed by a promoter and developer team comprised of U+I and TOWN to produce a mixed use masterplan for a large strategic brownfield site in north Cambridge. The Cambridge Northern Fringe East (CNFE) site currently comprises a 120 acre water recycling centre owned by Anglian Water and a golf driving range owned by Cambridge City Council. Located within easy walking and cycling distance of Cambridge North train station it is an ideal site upon which to deliver a major residential-led mixed-use urban quarter.

URBED were appointed by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to support the production of the second draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework. The framework is a joint plan for Greater Manchester that will set out the future strategy for housing, jobs and infrastructure across the city region. It is being produced by all 10 Councils within Greater Manchester, who are working in partnership to plan strategically for the future.
