Building for Life

Ely Court features as an exemplar project in the 2016 edition of Building for Life 12 (BfL12), a leading guide for creating well-designed homes and neighbourhoods.

Endorsed by government and managed by three partners – Design Council CABE, Design for Homes and the Home Builders Federation – BfL12 is integral to the UK’s commitment to build more and better homes.

Reinvented in 2012 to reflect the National Planning Policy Framework, BfL12 was also designed to support the Government’s commitment to:

  • Building more homes
  • Building better designed homes and neighbourhoods
  • Creating a more creative and collaborative planning system
  • Involving local communities in shaping development proposals
