Beacon’s neighbourhood research and tools: A summary

Andrea Blackmore.

This report summarises the research journey that underlies the development of the Neighbourhood Sustainability Framework and its assessment tools.  Sustainable neighbourhoods have always been part of Beacon’s vision and a considerable stream of research has been dedicated to defining a sustainable neighbourhood and developing the tools to measure them.

This report links each stage of the research to the relevant original report, available on Beacon’s website. It introduces the tools and what they offer practitioners.
