Subdivision & Neighbourhood Design / Subdivision / Community /
Subdivision design is an essential tool in the process of creating amenity, character, and identity in new developments. The creation of identity is a key factor in building a link between people and a place. This is what drives social contact, neighbourliness, a sense of ownership and belonging, and the willingness to accept a personal risk to investigate, for example, what a stranger is doing wandering around the windows next door. This common cause is the essence of a community.
