B23: The Liveability Agenda

11th June 2004.

During 2001, Tony Blair prioritised ‘liveability’ as an objective for urban policy. The liveability agenda focuses on anti-social behaviour and environmental management, and the quality of open and green spaces. Since 2001 a number of policies have been developed that contribute to the development of the urban environment.

This CLES bulletin aims to outline the newest developments in the government’s liveability agenda with a focus on urban public space.
