Current policies in planning emphasise the importance of rejuvenating neighbourhoods. This new guide bridges the gap between rhetoric and reality, promoting an interprofessional and collaborative approach to making localities work. The objective is to design neighbourhoods that are healthy, safe, friendly and attractive for residents and users, whilst being more self-sustaining in terms of water, energy, local services and work. Social inclusion, accessibility and the quality of the public realm are central tenets. Shaping Neighbourhoods is distinctive in showing not only what should be done but also how it could be done. Expounded with illustrations and case-studies, this practical guide provides a beneficial reference for planners and all those involved in the processes of urban design.
