  • Design of public housing landscape should aim to encourage provision of playgrounds into locally accessible parks rather than solely within the boundary of the housing, so as to encourage integration and connection with the wider community. 
  • Public housing landscape design shall be innovative and look to incorporating community gardens /allotments, sustainable urban drainage systems, green roofing, home zones and public art.
