Urban design and sustainability

Urban architecture

Urban design aims to create sustainable urban environments with long-lasting structures, buildings and a great standard of living for people.

Sustainable development is work which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

This can be achieved by:

  • Developing design standards and masterplans to ensure that only high quality development is built within Leicester
  • Managing flood risk in the city
  • Providing accessible development for all.
