New settlements and urban extensions need to be better designed, more sustainable and deliver more liveable outcomes – truly ‘Walkable Neighbourhoods’, focused on local living and sustainable travel.

Walkability is the foundation upon which a sustainable future should be built. To realise a world in which more than half of journeys are made by active or sustainable modes requires a paradigm shift. Creating the scale necessary to deliver this vision requires ambition, long-term planning and political will.

The aim of this research is to stimulate an informed discussion amongst leaders, policymakers, planners, developers and designers. Through visionary leadership and practical application, we can tackle the environmental, social and economic challenges facing our world.
