This guide explores how to create attractive and well-managed places that meet the needs of all sections of the community. Drawing on the latest research, and featuring nine case study areas, it includes detailed guidance on:

  • developing a strategy and negotiating the planning process;
  • good practice in masterplanning, design, layout and long-term financial viability;
  • how stakeholders can collaborate effectively and ensure that local residents are fully involved at all stages;
  • how barriers to the development of sustainable communities might be overcome.

The guide explores all types of mixed income communities, from the diversification of single-tenure inner-city estates to greenfield development on the urban fringe.
