Walkability

Mixed-use neighbourhoods that encourage walking are most likely to be associated with positive social encounters and a strong sense of community.

From principle to strategies

  • Create accessible spaces and connections that promote walking, biking and casual social encounters.

  • Build flexible vehicle parking infrastructure that accommodates various uses and alternate future demand.

  • Locate housing so that shops and services are within an easy walking distance on a safe, comfortable route.
