This appendix to CREATE Report 5.2 is an in-depth study of indicators related to street liveability and place quality in relation to urban transport policy. The first section is a review of relevant studies from the fields of urban design, urban planning, and transport planning literature and aims at answering three questions: 1) What is the meaning of 'place' and what is it describing in the context of street liveability? 2) What factors are known to contribute to good or successful places or to improve the quality of place?, 3) How is the quality of place currently measured and valued? The second section presents the main conclusions of a workshop that brought together experts from different backgrounds to discuss concepts of place quality and the existing limitations to measure and value that quality. The third section is an analysis of "Healthy Streets" survey data collected by Transport for London in 80 streets in London. The objective was to understand to what extent perceived street satisfaction and attractiveness can be explained by the features defined by the theoretical concepts and the experts’ views presented in the two first sections.
