LOW COST IMPROVEMENT OF THE OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT OF URBAN AREAS. FINAL REPORT OF THE GROUP ON THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT

The report examines the low-cost improvement of the outdoor environment in existing urban centres by the development of spaces surrounding buildings. Low-cost measures are defined as those nearer to the cost of maintaining existing structures than of replacing them. Such improvements, while not necessarily extending the life of existing urban areas, can spread the process of rebuilding over a number of years. Improvements discussed include measures to reduce the danger of traffic and parking; the introduction of rights of way for pedestrians and cyclists; recreational areas; the improvement of the appearance of buildings; and, the conservation of existing urban areas. /TRRL/
