Walkable urbanism is a development strategy in opposition to suburban sprawl. It advocates housing for a diverse population, a full mix of uses, walkable streets, positive public space, integrated civic and commercial centres, transit orientation and accessible open space. It also advocates for density and accessibility of commercial and government activity.
