Design Value at the Neighbourhood Scale

Cover Design Value at the Neighbourhood Scale

Creating well-designed neighbourhoods is widely accepted as an important policy objective. However, there is limited agreement on what this means in practice.

Synthesising the UK-based academic refereed literature, grey literature and policy documents, this evidence review explores the various ways in which design value has been defined and measured, and promoted, before concluding with a working definition of design value that incorporates social, environmental and economic elements.
