Creating Places: Achieving quality in residential environmentsThis guide describes the contributions to quality and sustainability that developers in Northern Ireland will be expected to make through the design of new residential developments.
It seeks to ensure that what is designed and built today will be cherished by both present and future generations.
The guide is for use by all those involved in the design of new residential developments and the rejuvenation of existing housing areas – primarily house-builders, architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners and road engineers. It is intentionally not slanted towards any one profession or group, in the belief that what is said here is relevant to all those who have an interest in the design of the places where we live.
