What it is:

A coalition of leading urban design organisations, professionals or professional bodies
promoting quality urban design.

What it’s useful for:

Outcomes of urban design are not the exclusive province of any one profession or group. Only
through collaboration and joint activity can quality urban design be achieved. An urban design
network can promote quality design, support continuing professional development events and
bring together different urban design professions and professionals.

How it’s done:

Through a formal association or liaison of professionals or institutes with a clear commitment,
mission or set of criteria that joins the members of the group together to support and promote
quality urban design.
