Those of you who have heard me speak will have heard of the ‘Croissant Test’. So what am I on about I hear you ask? In simple terms if you can walk from your home to a local bakery, buy a croissant and bring it home while it is still warm you are living in a great place. Make sense? This is the essence of a walkable neighbourhood where the things you need are 5-10 minutes walk away, as opposed to another car journey.
