This book is an essential primer to help those involved in planning secure higher standards ofã building, open space and neighbourhood design and the delivery of better places. The UK Government's policy for design in the planning system is contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), with expanded guidance being provided in the Planning Practice Guidance (PPG). This book expands on these and provides up to date explanations, examples, top tips and practical advice to help the reader understand and apply national design policies and guidance. ã The book is structured in an easy to use fashion, with general principles and concepts described in Part 1, and Part 2 explaining how these can be applied to particular development types, such as housing, public space or tall buildings. The book will be invaluable for planners, councillors, highway engineers and anyone involved in planning, creating or changing places. This book is written by a team of experts overseen by Urban Design London. Together, the contributions combine an impressive range of knowledge and expertise to set out a tried, tested and practical approach to delivering better urban places, not just in London but throughout the UK and abroad.
