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 11 case studies from Scotland and England, it offers a comprehensive guide to the issues that need to be planned for and addressed. The book 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 mono-tenure estates in inner city areas to greenfield development on the urban fringe.
