The concept of walkability and walkable
neighbourhood is investigated using sequential mixed-
method studies. A synergistic research project using
mixed methods as one method enabled another to be
more effective by providing a fuller understanding of the
walkability, walkable neighbourhoods which ultimately
lead to form the walkable cities.
Data collected in study is firstly the exploration of
the term ‘walkability’ & its definition, ‘walkable
neighbourhood’ and ‘walkable cities’. The
multidisciplinary dimensions and benefits of walkability
and walkable neighbourhoods are studied. Findings are
named as 3E’s of walkability which is Essential,
Encouraged & Extra.
Keywords : Walkability, Walkable neighbourhood, Walkable Cities, 3 E’s findings.
