The Place Standard
The Place Standard tool is a simple way for anyone to assess the quality of a place.
The tool provides a framework to structure conversations about place. It allows people to think about the physical elements of a place (for example its buildings, spaces, and transport links) as well as the social aspects (for example whether people feel they have a say in decision making).
A new 'Design' version of the Place Standard tool is also available. It provides a method through which the Place Standard can directly inform the emerging design of a development or a place.
