Placecheck is a freely available set of questions that can be used to undertake an appraisal of a neighbourhood, town, villageĀ orĀ street. It provides a method of assssing the qualities of a place, highlighting where improvements are needed, and helping people come together to make changes.

It was developed by the Urban Design Alliance in the 1990s, and has been used across the country since. There is often a benefit in having an independant facilitator for a Placecheck exercise.
