UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE)

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow
Department Name: School of Social & Political Sciences

Abstract

The Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) will be an independent, multi-disciplinary and multi-sector consortium of academic and non-academic stakeholders. CaCHE will be UK-wide in coverage (across all four nations and at different spatial scales within), as well as UK-level in focus. It will advance knowledge and improve the evidence base for both housing policy and practice in all parts of the U.K.

CaCHE will be organised as a "hub and spoke" network with its administrative core in Glasgow and a physical presence in all 5 sub-national knowledge exchange hubs in Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales & the South West, the North & Midlands, and London, East & South East. Additionally, our six research themes will cross cut the different geographies depending on relevancy and appropriateness. The management team will be responsible for overall strategy, operational delivery, co-ordination, data navigation, research and KE. The management team of three academics (Gibb, Watkins and Orford) will be supplemented by a senior non-academic lead on knowledge exchange and communications (Smart), plus a full time programme manager, KE and communications, administrative and technical support staff. The evidence centre and its management team will be accountable to a funders group and an international advisory board.

The main consortium members are the Universities of Glasgow, Sheffield, Bristol, Cardiff, Ulster, Reading, Sheffield Hallam, St. Andrews and Heriot-Watt, along with the National Institute of Social and Economic Research, CIH, RICS and the RTPI. The consortium has a lengthy list of institutional and individual collaborators at regional and national level and our activity will be supported 'in kind' and direct contributions from additional partners including Crisis, the Wheatley Group, NatCen, Shelter, Rightmove and several more. Our consortium also has specific project plans with four complementary ESRC investments: Urban Big Data Centre, What Works Scotland, Public Policy Institute for Wales, and the ADRC-Scotland, and will seek to collaborate with others including the What Works Centre for Wellbeing.

Initially, a five year programme, CaCHE will seek to become self-financing sustained beyond this period. It will do so by regular scanning of opportunities with partners, and by also being impactful and influential through a combination of rigorous evidencing, prioritised across six research themes, which in turn will generate a new primary research agenda to be prosecuted by the evidence centre.

A key way in which relevance and credibility will be sustained is through the comprehensive nature and persistence of our knowledge exchange and collaborative working with non-academic stakeholders. We will repeatedly utilise an innovative collaborative working practice - the Tobin Project Process - in order to build a consensus through rigorous and intensive examination of the key questions and priorities exercising non-academic partners and our stakeholders nationally and in each region. In this way, we will co-produce our evidence review and research strategy priorities and will fully engage, mobilise and disseminate findings with academic and particularly non-academic groups through our network of networks (i.e. drawing on existing networks of contacts via our non-academic and academic partners).

CaCHE will promote and support interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work and invest in knowledge exchange training for staff to maximise the impact of our multiple dissemination channels: non-technical briefing, summaries, academic and trade publications, targeted technical reports, high standard non technical international evidence review, blog posts, tweets, audio and visual pod casts, roadshows, seminars, conferences, workshops and media contributions. The evidence centre will support an extensive programme of staff secondments, promoting mobility between the academy and the policy and practice communi

Planned Impact

CaCHE will maximize social & economic impact nationally and regionally, such that it has every opportunity to influence housing policy and practice. Knowledge generation, translation and exchange will be central both to our activities and how we are to be assessed. CaCHE will have a physical presence in Glasgow, Sheffield, London, Cardiff & Belfast. Our work nationally and regionally will be systematically co-produced with non-academic stakeholders through prioritisation of key questions with which to address evidence gaps, develop research agendas, and collaboratively deliver our KE activities & impact objectives (see Pathways to Impact).

Nationally and in each of the five regional KE nodes, we will develop a housing system approach to identifying a wide range of active non-academic collaborators (and reaching out to disseminate to their professional, membership & community networks). We expect the work to benefit national and devolved governments, local government, the different parliaments and public agencies (such as the Bank of England and the Cabinet Office), as well as housing organisations and their trade bodies in the public and third sectors (including regulators and, for instance, homelessness charities). Key trade bodies include CIH, RTPI, RICS, HBF, Design Council Cabe, and the NHF, as well as regional equivalents. Our work will be directly useful to professionals and the private sector - developers, agents, landlords, advocacy bodies, architectural practices, lenders, policy think tanks and consultants. The centre will also be important for tenant bodies, community groups, wider consumer interests, and special interest groups including those that champion housing for older people and sustainable housing solutions. A fuller list can be discerned from our extensive set of non-academic collaborators and partners. Staff from CIH, RTPI and RICS will be CIs within CaCHE and others including Shelter and the Wheatley Group, from the third and public sectors, and Rightmove and Retties from the private sector, will be partners.

The 3 main ways the non-academic partners will benefit from the work are: (i) playing a full role co-producing the review and research agendas so that they are consistent with their own reasoned priorities - in this way, the NAPs will 'own' the agenda; (ii) accessing all of the subsequent accessible and non-technical outcomes of each theme-based set of outputs including KE events and workshops regionally and nationally; and (iii) drawing on the policy and practice evidence in their own organisations and to shape and influence locally, regionally and nationally - indeed, we believe that the nodes themselves will become on-going policy fora for regional policy reform.

The primary ways that CaCHE will ensure impact is maximized is by delivering a series of integrating activities:
- Tobin workshops to set priorities;
- KE workshops including evidence festivals, policy reunions, evidence to action events, strategy labs and international policy transfer workshops
- A series of inward and outward-facing secondments
- Specific policy governmental and parliamentary engagement across the UK
- Public engagement programmes designed by CaCHE and also with complementary ESRC investments.

CaCHE will employ a critical mass of 6 dedicated knowledge exchange and communications staff (3.9 FTEs) along with the Director of KE and communications to manage and oversee the stakeholder engagement work of the centre, following good practice in order to broker and translate evidence across the UK. Our budget is 22% impact focused (or 38% including indirects).

The legacy of the proposed activities will be supported by developing long lasting evidence networks, seeking leveraged funding to support the continuation of such networks formally, and also through developing and supporting websites, repositories and the data navigator hub after the funding life of the evidence centre ends.

Description This is an interim statement of key findings at November 2021 - funding continues till end October 2022. All references below are in our Research Fish entry under 'Publications'.

As an evidence centre, the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) generates new knowledge, synthesises evidence, undertakes primary research and seeks to maximise knowledge exchange, mobilisation and impact through its many communications channels, KE hubs and other networks. It is multi-disciplinary and organised around seven themes (economy, markets, place, choice, governance, wider drivers and homelessness) and cross-cutting integrative studies, producing more than 50 projects from its core and also, external funding, programmes, since it began in August 2017 (see: https://housingevidence.ac.uk).

Key findings, or most significant achievements to date can be organised by our themes and cross-cutting work:
• CaCHE has built up a repository of new, high-quality evidence reviews across a wide set of topics covering all of our key themes. These are rapid, accessible, standardised international evidence reviews that synthesise knowledge and identify gaps and research agendas. One area is housing wealth inequality. Soaita, Gibb and Maclenann. (2020) found that the capacity of housing wealth to reduce state welfare requirements is highly uncertain and in part dependent on wider national welfare regimes. In any case, growing asset price appreciation is encouraging new landlordism and negating the capacity of growing home ownership to reduce inequality, as it once did. Housing wealth growth is also destabilising economies.
• CaCHE has undertaken early empirical, policy and conceptual research on Covid-19 and housing. Preece, et al (2021) found that within the UK's often smaller housing stock, pre-existing disadvantage was amplified by the pressure of living under lockdown with adverse implications for wellbeing.
• Developing a new typology of homelessness prevention allowed Cross-UK analysis of current and emerging practice (Fitzpatrick, et al, 2021). The study found that universal preventative action and more upstream action has been generally deficient but there is emerging evidence that policy is shifting from basic or emergency interventions toward more avoidance measures. They also found that repeat interventions are shifting more towards housing solutions.
• With regard to deepening understanding of housing affordability and the economics of house prices, CaCHE invited Mulheirn (2019) to publish his thought-provoking research proposing that house prices are more driven by demand (e.g. intertest rates) than supply (published along with peer reviews). Meen and Whitehead (2020) published an important new text that argued against simple rules of thumb to define and measure affordability, stressed the importance of non-housing policies in shaping housing outcomes, and concluded that in seeking a more pro-development planning system the UK needs to look beyond crude and panacea type reforms.
• Research on housing aspirations and choice suggests that declining rates of home ownership, unaffordability and precarious labour market and welfare safety nets are fundamentally changing aspirations about housing (Preece, et al, 2019). One specific example of this is the insecurity and emotional challenges of living in the contemporary private rented sector for many younger people (McKee, et al, 2019).
• The within-UK focus of CaCHE has led to considerable learning about housing policy and practice divergence across the UK for example, the diverse regulatory landscape for private renting (Marsh and Gibb, 2019; Harris, et al, 2020), and the different availability and depth of subsidy for social and affordable housing (Stephens, 2017; Gibb, 2020). While our work has also made us cautious about applying policy lessons from other countries into new contexts (Soaita, Marsh and Gibb, 2021), it is evident that there are many cases of different policies operating unproblematically in one country but deemed impossible in another (e.g. ending the Right to Buy).
• A succession of projects on the design quality of new homes and their neighbourhoods culminated in a report by White, et al. (2020) examining the typical practice of private development and seeking to understand why it so often fails and urging instead strong design standards on a par with building standards.
• It is widely recognised that a coherent and systematic evidence-based approach to housing supply requirements is an essential feature of local plans. Through CaCHE research for the Northern Ireland government, this has led to the exporting of the Scottish model of housing needs and demand analysis used to consistently support housing planning (Frey et al, 2020). This approach is now also being developed in Wales, while CaCHE and the Scottish Government are also discussing the model's development in the Republic of Ireland (where it is now being piloted).
• Working with HACT, CaCHE investigated the economic, social and health impacts of social housing investment and operations (Gibb, et al, 2020). A key practical finding was that using social value data used to quantify the benefits of programmes not only provides finders with clear impact expectations around an intervention but it also allows the provider to be accountable for that both to residents and funders. It can also be aligned to wider government performance indicators and ambitions.
Exploitation Route How might these findings be taken forward and by whom? There remain considerable evidence gaps in key areas such as homelessness prevention, housing and Covid-19, cross-UK learning, good practice in housing and neighbourhood design, and with regard to policy reform of the planning system for housing. These all continue to be active research and evidence areas for CaCHE and are opportunities for further research by colleagues across the wider housing research landscape, opportunities that we would be pleased to help facilitate whether or not CaCHE is directly involved.

Description This is an interim impact narrative at November 2021 - funding continues till end October 2022. As an evidence centre, the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) generates new knowledge, synthesises evidence, undertakes primary research and seeks to maximise knowledge exchange (KE), mobilisation and impact through its many communications channels, KE hubs and other networks. (see: https://housingevidence.ac.uk). As an evidence centre, transmitting knowledge and developing (and maintaining) networks and strong relationships with policy and practice is critical to evidence impacting on housing processes and outcomes. We recognise that this will always be an uneven and variable experience but we believe we can point to a number of emerging and cumulative socio-economic impacts for research users as a consequence of CaCHE's work. CaCHE deploys its five knowledge associates to maintain close working relationships with the membership of our five KE hubs (each of which represent the housing sector as a whole) as well as maintaining regular contact and information sharing with UK government, devolved administrations and housing-oriented politicians across the UK. The team organises projects to all be impact led from the outset and, working with our communications officer, we seek to deploy a wide range of multi-media channels centred around our website, tailored events, social media and our you tube channel ('housing evidence'). CaCHE provides written and in person evidence to parliamentary committees in all parts of the UK, advises governments, commissions and speaks at other organisations' conferences and seminars. But does this considerable and relentless external relations activity generate wider impact? We think it does in at least six ways, which we discuss below alongside illustrative examples. • Cumulative focused high-quality work on a specific topic breaks through into policy and practice. CaCHE is beginning the third year of a three-year programme funded by the TDS Charitable Foundation to raise standards in the PRS across the UK. A series of projects have been co-designed with a steering committee and report to advisory groups in Scotland and England. This has led to important work being taken forward by the sector e.g. research on enforcement and compliance of regulations has led to case study councils changing their policies • CaCHE has been involved in providing secondary evidence and helping generate primary evidence to support specific inquiries. One example of this was preparing a report and evidence review about private sector improvement policy for the Good Home Inquiry, funded by the Centre for Ageing Better and chaired by David Orr. • CaCHE has undertaken direct policy development work. Working for the Department for Communities in Northern Ireland, CaCHE modelled demand, identified key legal, financial and governance criteria and then designed a proposal and sense checked an outline model for a new intermediate rent product. This is now being consulted on with a view to start constructing and purchasing such properties offering sub market rents, financial transactions capital funding and long tenancies in 2023. • By offering a capacity to use multiple channels of KE and communications, it can be possible to elevate a specific project and idea to quite significant levels of impact. CaCHE is leading an SFC-funded evaluation of a traditional Glasgow tenement retrofit to an EnerPHit PassivHaus standard. The project is due to be completed on site in February 2022 but it has been the subject of considerable media, practitioner, political and international interest (CaCHE also made a 15 minute film about the project - on our you tube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLiKTvL9YSI. It has featured in TV and print news as well as across social media. The site has been visited by ministers and local and national politicians, as well as international delegations. It has featured in COP26, including as one of 17 world leading built environment projects. It is being discussed at the Scottish Parliament. More locally, Glasgow city's head of housing has said that the learning from the project will inform the city's tenement retrofit strategy and has already led to planning policy reform. We have also learned lessons for future KE work e.g. the potential value of our own films, media briefing and partnership working. • Impact is also about public engagement, which is why we invest so much effort on social media and make significant contributions to the Festival of Social Science each year in Sheffield, Glasgow and other CaCHE nodes. • CaCHE is now highly visible across the UK as a source of housing evidence synthesis and a potential partner in research. We have become a more trusted source of independent evidence and analysis to stakeholders. Recently, we have partnered with the Scottish Government to run a series of ongoing roundtables with senior civil servants based on recommendations in an election time working paper on priorities for the new government. We have also provided early sight of a new evidence review to ministers to help with their specific policy development in a key area of housing reform and we have supported parliamentary committees in setting their annual agendas. CaCHE is also writing internal papers for government departments to also help with policy development. KE is labour-intensive and our long-term programme requires that we build and maintain relationships as well as providing a flow of relevant and accessible evidence in a rigorous and independent way, in a variety of formats, through a range of channels. Four years into our programme we are definitely seeing evidence of accumulating impact from our activities - but, given the lead-lag times for policy and practice influence, we are confident that we can achieve more.

Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact This was a CaCHE organised roundtable discussion relating to the 'Housing and the Economy' theme, of which Jeff Matsu and Geoff Meen are co-leaders. The main objective of the morning was to work with eight key stakeholders to help prioritise the research agenda for the 'Housing and the Economy' theme. Geoff Meen, Jeff Matsu, and Chris Foye organised the prioritisation exercise, which revolved around stakeholders identifying what they thought were the key gaps in the 'Housing and the Economy' evidence-base that CaCHE should be addressing. We are currently working together on a summary of the roundtable that details the outputs from the discussion. We expect this to be published on the CaCHE website in the next month or two, hopefully stimulating further external engagement with the theme. An additional objective was to explore opportunities for collaboration in two exemplar projects. To this end, for 20 minutes, Geoff Meen presented his work on the CaCHE exemplar project "International evidence review: policies to improve housing affordability at all spatial scales" while Jeff Matsu led a discussion of his plans for the CaCHE exemplar project 'International evidence review: economic impacts and incidence of housing taxation", which only recently commenced. As a result of the workshop, Chris Foye, Geoff Meen and Jeff Matsu were able to develop relationships with key stakeholders in relation to the two exemplar projects, with several of those stakeholders in attendance making substantial suggestions about the exemplar projects.

Results and Impact On 9 July 2021, the Scottish Government published a report on The Value, Incidence and Impact of Developer Contributions in Scotland. The report is an independent piece of research on Section 75 planning obligations - the equivalent of Section 106 in England - and other developer contributions mechanisms. It draws on quantitative and qualitative evidence to assess the scale, use, spread, and effectiveness of existing mechanisms, and inform the Scottish Government's wider review of developer contributions. The research concludes that the system is generally accepted as working well, albeit more so for affordable housing than for infrastructure contributions; but it could be improved if, among other things, 1) participants were better informed on performance and delivery through a coordinated and comprehensive monitoring system; and 2) local planning authorities shared good practice more widely. The report also highlights questions of equity in the provision of planning obligations between areas with high land values and those with low land values. At a recent meeting of the CaCHE Housing and Place Delivery Forum, we were joined by three of the report's authors, Dr John Boyle, Prof Kath Scanlon and Stefano Smith, to discuss the key implications of their research. This blog, written by the Chair of the HPDF, Steven Tolson, offers some reflections on the research and discussion.

Results and Impact A webinar to discuss how we can achieve more, high-quality homes and create places that work for everyone in Scotland. Hosted by Prof David Adams, featuring speakers from govt, industry, third sector, and housing, planning, development professions etc. Feedback incls:
What impact, if any, did the webinar have on you and/or your thinking or approach to your work?
1 Helped me to think broadly from different perspectives about the key issues I am studying
2 Really good to issue the other report webinar links beforehand to get the speakers and attendees well warmed up and briefed in advance. I have learned more about the great practical work going on. I am more and more persuaded that we need a new consensus driven and collaborative approach to housing delivery and we need to think hard about the European models e.g. Netherlands and Germany.
3 new ideas for sure
4 It reinforced my thinking on the need for reform to address market failure and made clear that there is generally widespread support for radical change.
5 Realising how many different strands are involved and how coordination and long term view is important.
6 1) Need for me to do more learning around how the different subsets/players interface in housing. 2) Find out why there's still so little interest in linking up housing and the economy
7 Gave me new insights and new ways of thinking to take forward
8 It posed many aspects to consider, especially the role of communities in the delivery process.
9 It was informative on the central issue of Place which is at the core of what we do.
10 I will probably look at the Scotland's Town Partnership and Midtown Steeple websites, hopefully they will plant the seeds of ideas that I may be able to use in the future.
11 Wider policy consideration, and also personally really helpful for my academic study
12 Insight into how the private sector thinks/works is helpful in planning how to engage with them and potentially collaborate.
13 It broadened my horizons I guess
14 Strategic thinking vs practical considerations

Results and Impact Over the last ten years, high-rise housing developments have cropped up in cities across the UK, especially London and Manchester.
The vertical reconfiguration of urban form in this way is emerging as one of numerous ways to increase and intensify the supply of housing.
Yet, high-rise housing can have profound and potentially long-term socio-spatial implications for residents and surrounding neighbourhoods. Moreover, as demonstrated tragically by Grenfell, there are concerns about the long-term safety, security and maintenance of high-rise building.
This new report from the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) explores these issues, among others. Reviewing the international evidence base, it addresses the following questions:
What factors are driving the proliferation of high rise developments?
What are the characteristics of high-rise developments in terms of density, unit size and the socio-demographics of those residing in them? And what effect do they have on social cohesion, crime, etc.?
How sustainable is this housing typology and how should policymakers and practitioners respond to high rise developments both today and in the future?
This webinar launched the report and we discussed these issues with an international panel of experts.
