Using the power of data to make finding land easy, quick and transparent. DemoDev places citizens at the heart of a strategy to tackle the UK housing crisis through building homes enabled by new local, digital supply chains and convening a nationwide open impact movement.

To date DemoDev been running in collaboration with Ordnance Survey, Land Registry, Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Combined Authority.

DemoDev will link the built environment directly to neighbourhood outcomes and giving people the opportunity to build their own homes, whilst hosting a strong voice on the need for inclusive, democratic and citizen-centred development at scale across the city.
