The UK Residential Council’s utilises ULI’s extensive public and private networks to exercise leadership and share best practice for the responsible management, design, investment and development of domestic properties across the UK. Our programme this year will focus on four main areas: garden cities (new towns), capacity, affordable housing and build to rent (PRS).
Who we are
We are leading designers, developers, investors, property owners and managers, engineers, academics and civil servants, as well as other professionals, all active in the UK residential property sector. We welcome members and participants from the public and private, large and small organisations who care about advancing best practice across the all fields of the residential sector.
We work with industry representatives and the public sector in the UK to establish the national agenda and the European Council internationally, to ensure that we are sharing best practice and thought leadership with our members in the UK.
Build to Rent
In April 2014 the UK Residential Council published Build To Rent: A Best Practice Guide, a seminal industry guide for the residential sector. The Guide, co-sponsored by the UK Government’s Private Rented Sector Taskforce, aims to provide a valuable and practical guide to the market for the development and ownership of purpose-built residential stock that meets the needs and aspirations of future investors and renters. A second edition was released in late 2015.
