In this section we introduce design concepts together with proposals for streets, schools and neighbourhoods. Many of our designs are from a local champion who knows the area well.

Our everyday lives are touched by the places that surround us. The qualities of these places – our buildings, streets and parks – informs our interactions, understandings, wellbeing and memories. A review of research exploring healthcare, education, workplaces, housing, justice, urban design and transport projects demonstrates that good design enables people, places and the environment to thrive.
