Designing Walkable Future Neighbourhoods: Considering Diversity

Author Published Date Read Publication

Research about walkable neighbourhoods is commonly based on the notion of an adult able-bodied walker.

However, people have different physical, social, cultural, emotional, and financial abilities and resources to navigate the neighbourhood landscape. This diversity should be recognised at design and planning stages, along with the recognition that the resident population of a neighbourhood is not static. This paper looks at the needs of children, older people, and people with a disability when creating more liveable and accessible neighbourhoods. It examines the commonalities and contradictions between different individuals in order to resolve them.
