LEED for Neighbourhood Development (LEED-ND) integrates the principles of smart growth, New Urbanism and green building into the first national rating system for neighbourhood design. The rating system was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in partnership with the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) and the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC).
