This article reviews the evidence on links between value and built form or use in a range of separate categories related to streets: patterns, types and uses. The aim is to examine the evidence around these categories, to help answer the question about how best to inter-weave connectivity and accessibility with everyday life in a way that would appear to work for most residents most of the time and also deliver value to investors and owners in the medium to long term. Some key lessons emerge from the literature review of relationships between place and value that tend to be true most of the time. Ultimately, most people will pay more for a well-connected property away from too much noise, pollution and one waystreets and within walking distance of local amenities.
