The Value of Urban Design

“The Value of Urban Design represents a ground-breaking attempt to pin down
the economic, social and environmental value of good urban design.
Undertaken by the Bartlett School of Planning for CABE and DETR, the study
uses an analysis of selected commercial developments in the UK to look at how
good urban design provides a range of benefits including higher rental levels,
lower maintenance costs, enhanced regeneration and increased public support
for development. The study makes essential reading for developers, investors,
occupiers, planners and design professionals and marks an important step
towards ensuring that urban design receives adequate investment from the
public and private sectors.”
