Buildings should be designed with the landscape, streetscape and neighbours in mind. 

The regulatory model should be clear and managed in way that provides certainty for developers, occupiers, neighbours and for future generations.

The overall aims should be those of increased amenity, more efficient use of land and greener building standards.  Design and construction should also take into account emergent technologies and the ability to more easily adapt buildings for change uses over time.
