Design Guidance: Reviews

These represent valuable examples of recent Design Guides - those informed by changes in national policy and advice such as Planning Policy Guidance PPG3 Housing (March 2001), By Design (May 2000) and Places, Streets and Movement (1998). They address key urban design principles in areas such as transport and residential layout and provide a contextual and 'joined-up' approach which considers both process and product. They are less prescriptive than others in considering how to get the desired results, and illustrate some of the key issues involved in achieving them.
