Complete Neighbourhoods – three key concepts
- A complete neighbourhood has all of your essential needs within close proximity to one another, and supports the needs of all residents in a community, regardless of income, culture, background or abilities. Think: diverse housing options, a mix of shops and services, alongside childcare facilities, libraries, galleries and recreation centres – linked by lively pathways, parks and plazas.
- A complete neighbourhood supports the well-being, needs and dignity of people of all ages, identities, backgrounds and abilities. It is about strengthening social connections and networks, while also creating better opportunities for everyone to thrive, and lead better lives. A complete neighbourhood is a place of neighbours - friends, family, workers… long time residents and the new folks that just moved in down the street.
- A city of complete neighbourhoods offers safe connections, convenient walking, rolling and biking routes, and easy transit access to key destinations – whether it’s work, school, healthcare, a wander along on the seawall, or a night out on the town. It’s about the city as a mosaic of connected, unique places.
