New report on the built environment calls on devolved governments, mayors and local authorities to step up

The Design Commission has come up with solid evidence in difficult areas about what in our built environment makes our lives better. It has looked at what can make us healthier, what can make communities get on better with each other, what can preserve our air quality and save energy and what can enable higher productivity.  

This report argues that there are clear design principles that can be led at different governmental levels, and that the private sector has a key role to play as a behavioural change leader, rather than simply an implementer of policy.
