Book Description


Whilst this publication can still be purchased some of the information in it has been superseded by more recent research and standards. The BRE Group does not accept any responsibility whatsoever for any loss or damage, including - without limitation - indirect or consequential loss or damage arising from use, or loss of use, of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this document.

The aim of achieving a sustainable masterplan is to deliver a balanced outcome for a new development that addresses all the important issues, many of which depend on the local context and differ for every development. Sustainable masterplanning is an integrated process: sustainability cannot be treated as an 'add-on' and many issues need to be considered, eg use of resources, enhancement of the site's ecology, transport strategy, to give a few examples. Two of the tools available to help with this, the Sustainable Communities wheel and GreenPrint, are briefly discussed in this Information Paper, which is based on a short extract from Masterplanning science and technology parks: a BRE guide BR 505.
