The Centre for Research on Property and Planning (RPP) covers activities across an inter- related spectrum embracing property/real estate research from development, investment and user perspectives, housing, regeneration, spatial planning and transportation.
Economic conditions, investment and employment, public policy and government expenditure, societal expectations and environmental limits, such as climate change and natural resource availability, have all changed the context within which the built environment operates and are the key drivers in shaping RPP's research agenda.
Research within RPP is organised into six main sub-groups
- property taxation
- investment and real estate markets
