Community in compact cities

What does ‘community’ mean in compact cities? How does the built environment impact on social relations? How does our age and stage of life shape these experiences? What are the key debates and issues?

Looking to answer these questions, researchers have compiled a literature review of factors that enhance place-based social relations in compact cities. It is now available free to download.
