“7Ls” of urban planning & design

Location – where is the site and what’s around it

Linkage – where are the principal ways into the site (can any new ones be established?)

Layout – the pattern & hierarchy of streets

Land use – more than housing?

Landscape – the look and feel of the place (covers a lot eg materials, blue/green)

Lining – how the buildings meet the street (active or blank frontages)

Longevity – quality construction & operational expectations
