Active frontage

Bradford City Centre Design Guide, Supplementary Planning Document, published in 2006, defines frontage as: ‘…the front face of a building where it has its main door windows.’

It defines active frontage as: ‘…ground floors with windows and doors onto the street which create interest and activity. This normally means shopfronts but can include atriums and foyers.’
