Conclusion

Dispersed housing appears to be superior to clustered housing on the majority of quality indicators studied. The only exception to this is that village communities for people with less severe disabilities have some benefits; this is not however a model which can be feasibly provided for everyone. There is no evidence that clustered housing can deliver the same quality of life as dispersed housing at a lower cost.
