So you might be wondering… what is a 15-minute neighbourhood?

The key concept of a 15-minute neighbourhood is that residents can access all of their needs within a short walk or cycle from their homes. The concept is built from four pillars;

1. PROXIMITY

2. DIVERSITY

3.DENSITY

4.UBIQUITY

The aim is to create self-sufficient neighbourhoods that are well connected without relying on car usage.

The result of this will be to make life more livable for residents by making neighbourhoods safer, inclusive, diverse, quiet, less polluted and economically vibrant.

This is just a short introduction to the concept of 15-minute neighbourhoods. Please feel free to read around the subject and we will be researching the concept in more detail at the start of the two week project.
