Concepts of Neighbourhood: A Review of the Literature

Author Published Date Read Publication

This report looks at why the concept of neighbourhood is important.

Key ideas include neighbourhood planning (development, growth, and transit-oriented development), neighbourhood units and boundaries, neighbourhood walkability, neighbourhood (and in some cases residential) satisfaction, and neighbourhood change. Studies that look at both location and sociological factors will facilitate easier comparison with planning policy and strategy where subjective neighbourhood boundaries are different from those imposed by local or regional councils. The review is structured to read as a narrative, however, relevant references and abstracts have been included in text-boxes throughout the document to ensure the easy use of this review as a tool for those writing subsequent research reports and articles.
