Compact Planning

Compactness of the built environment is a widely accepted strategy through which more sustainable urban forms might be achieved.

Density i.e. the ratio of people or dwelling units to land area is a critical factor in determining sustainable urban forms.

Research advocates urban development types that are spatially compact, with a mix of uses.

At Xrbia, we favour compact cities because urban land can be reused, while defined green areas beyond the urban edge are protected.
