Subdivision & Neighbourhood Design / Subdivision / Movement networks /
At some point in life everyone is limited to moving only as a pedestrian: through age, wealth, medical impairment or choice. Therefore subdivisions, and all roads within them, must be designed to prioritise walking.
On flatter land or subdivisions featuring small sites the preferred distance between road intersections (known as block dimensions) will be less than that on blocks on sloping land and with large sections. This will balance an efficient block structure with walkability.
