The design of the built environment has a significant effect on many
aspects of our day-to-day lives. Buildings, streets and parks influence us
in all kinds of ways, some obvious, some less so.
CABE has produced this handbook for senior staff in local authorities. It explains how improving the built environment can contribute to enhancing performance and meeting performance targets.
The aim of the handbook is to encourage readers to assess whether the places, streets and buildings for which they are responsible are contributing to, or hindering, service delivery.
