Short description: The quality of the places in which we live and work is important to our quality of life. How places are designed, built and run affects our housing opportunities and choices; our access to public transport, education and jobs; where we shop and spend our free time; even whether we feel safe walking down the street. English Partnerships’ Quality Standards apply to all of English Partnerships’ projects. These core common standards provide a level playing field, enabling potential partners to plan ahead and adapt policies, products and practices to achieve the quality required. The standards were revised in November 2007 and they now incorporate: The Code for Sustainable Homes - Level 3 Measures to prevent the overheating of homes in rising summer temperatures A requirement to reduce noise penetration in new homes Environmental quality in civil engineering Minimum space requirements for new homes.
