The Place Standard Guide

In their words:

“The Place Standard tool provides a simple framework to structure conversations about place. It allows you to think about the physical elements of a place (e.g. its buildings, spaces, and transport links) as well as the social aspects (e.g. whether people feel they have a say in decision making).

The tool provides prompts for discussions, allowing you to consider all the elements of place in a methodical way. The tool pinpoints the assets of a place as well as areas where a place could improve.”

The assessment tool is available both as an on-line tool or to download as a paper version.

On-line version available here at The Place Standard website
