Brighton & Hove has recently undertaken research into the social and emotional benefits of good design. The study focuses on New Road and Church Street.  

Brighton & Hove City Council undertook the recent research study The Social and Emotional Benefits of Good Design to: Better understand the social and emotional benefits of balanced street design; and Develop new methodologies for assessing and evaluating the social and emotional benefits of balanced street design. Social and emotional benefits of successful streets are difficult to quantify, not least because of the intangible nature of emotions. However, consideration of these benefits is critical if we are to make fully informed decisions on the cost-benefit values of investing in well designed streets.
