Design value at the neighbourhood scale

Creating well-designed neighbourhoods is widely accepted as an important policy objective across the different national Governments in the UK. National policies tend to agree that a well-designed neighbourhood typically has a permeable and legible street network, integrates mixed use and mixed tenure development, encourages community, offers access to high quality open space, and promotes walking and other modes of active travel, while also achieving a level of architectural distinctiveness and thus a robust sense of place.
