20 Minute Neighbourhoods
A 20 minute neighbourhood is an attractive, safe, walkable place where people of all ages and abilities can access the vast majority of the facilities and services they need daily within a walk of around 20 minutes.
20 minute neighbourhoods can help to reduce car use, encourage physical activity and help to support local businesses. However, they are not simply about accessing shops and public services.
They are places that help to build a sense of community and social capital and create a positive identity for a place and the people who live there.
