London Borough of Hounslow: Hounslow Assessment Database & Hounslow Intensification Tool

London Borough of Hounslow Planning and Development Team

Submission summary

The LB Hounslow have developed a cutting-edge digital toolkit that transforms the site allocation and capacity assessment process to better relate capacity to site character, utilising modelling techniques to expose sites with high development potential to fulfil our promises to residents.

The tools have yielded exceptional results that far exceed previous outputs in a fraction of the time. They have justified feasibility and concept design work for affordable housing and community hubs and identified sites for local plan allocation. This transformative technology will help the Council meet housing demands while also delivering communities and facilities for current and future residents.
