Bradford City Centre Design Guide, Supplementary Planning Document, published in 2006, defines enclosure ratio as: ‘A measure of the shape of a street expressed as a ratio in which the first number relates to the height of the buildings and the second to the width of the street. A street with an enclosure ratio of 1:2 is therefore twice as wide as the height of the buildings.’
