Lexical meaning of social housing in dictionary is “houses and flats that are built by local government or by any other organizations that is non profit making, and that are rented or sold to people who have low incomes.” When we hear “social housing” firstly we think about houses that are built for low incomes people.

At the same time, considering the environment of the houses to be built, their compatibility with the targeted social crowd of people in many issues should be taken into consideration while building social housingOne of the factors that make up a healthy society is neighbourhood relations, which are not really considered in the age we live today. The suitability of social housing with the targeted social crowd and its environment is consequently important.
