Improving walkability: Good practice guidance on improving pedestrian conditions as part of development opportunities

This guide highlights the importance of securing high quality improvements to the walking environment, including all streets and spaces that are used by the public, and shows how new developments provide opportunities to achieve such improvements.

It is a good practice guide to improving what may be termed the ‘walkability’ of the streets, squares and spaces that make up the public realm. Walkability is a measure of the extent to which the public realm provides for movement and other activity on foot in ways that are both efficient and enjoyable.
