Christchurch Urban Development Strategy used as demonstration model by UK Government


The Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy involved a spatial planning component, completed by Urbanism+ in 2008. It has been used by The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) as a demonstration model to help urban designers in the UK achieve outstanding sub-regional planning and urban design. CABE was set up in 1999 to provide expert independent design advice to architects and urban designers in order to improve the quality of design and development in the UK.  CABE’s role is to help public agencies commission better design – design which is functional and sustainable and which delights people – and to provide guidance and practical resources to urban designers contractors, architects and planners involved in creating towns and cities.
