Living Streets report – The pedestrian pound: the business case for better streets and places

The pedestrian pound: the business case for better streets and places
A new report from Living Streets makes a robust case that investing in good quality public realm can provide direct benefits to businesses and the local economy.
Living Streets commissioned research company Just Economics to bring together the evidence of the commercial and consumer benefits of good walking environments.
It reviews the academic literature and examines the relationship between investing in better streets and places and the impact on existing businesses, urban regeneration, and business and consumer perceptions.
To accompany the report, Living Streets has also put out its own summary report, outlining our key recommendations for putting these findings to work.
