Street and neighbourhood design that support activity
We promote and support the use of a range of street and neighbourhood design tools and guides. Using these guides will improve people’s ability and motivation to walk, cycle and play in their streets and neighbourhoods.
Integrating active design principles at the start of the design process makes the greatest impact. But these tools can be just as useful to guide the priorities for regeneration projects and community-led design.
In this section you’ll find resources and reference material related to street and neighbourhood design. They can help you plan, design, and co-produce spaces and places that make it easy for people to be more active in their communities.
