This report presents the findings of an evaluative assessment of the prototype Neighbourhood Sustainability Framework (NSF) presented in NH101/2 and released in 2005. The assessment was undertaken by using the prototype to measure the neighbourhood sustainability of seven neighbourhoods in the areas of Harbour View, Blake Street -Ponsonby, Petone, Aranui and Christchurch East Inner City. Data on those neighbourhoods were collected through the use of a
built environment assessment tool – LEED-ND – and through a neighbourhood questionnaire that collected self-report perceptual and behavioural data from neighbourhood residents.
