All interested parties are invited to submit their views on the following questions:
1) Does the built environment affect the behaviour of individuals or communities? Is there evidence to suggest that it does or does not? If yes, in what ways?
2) Are there examples of changes in behaviour on the part of people in the UK in relation to any aspect of the built environment? What examples should the inquiry look at, both positive and negative?
3) Are there examples where people have changed their behaviour as the result of some aspect of the built environment?
Both individuals and organisations are welcome to make submissions, with a deadline of 3 July 2015. The inquiry will also be holding roundtable evidence sessions in the Autumn Term, and may invite submitters to give evidence in person.
The Design Commission includes cross-party members of both houses along with leading members of the UK design industry. It acts as the research arm of the All Party Parliamentary Design and Innovation Group (APDIG).
