Density: video & reports
Here are some links to recent research and an interesting video lecture:
Removing the Roadblocks: How to Make Sustainable Development Happen Now, out last month from the UC Berkeley School of Law and UCLA School of Law.
From the Victorian Transport Policy Institute: Where We Want To Be: Home Location Preferences and their Implications for Smart Growth by Todd Litman
And thanks to the Ministry for the Environment Urban Leader newsletter, a very interesting lecture by Bill Hillier on the links between density and crime.
The National Research Council’s Transportation Research Board calculated the greenhouse gas savings if new housing was more compact and put homes close to jobs and other amenities. A report, requested by Congress and published last week, determined that 57 million US homes will be needed by 2030 to accommodate population growth and replacement housing.
