" To encourage and reward a building location that facilitates easy access to local services and so reduces the environmental, social and economic impacts resulting from multiple or extended building user journeys, including transport-related emissions and traffic congestion. "
UK Refurbishment and Fit-out 2014:
- Tra 02: Proximity to amenities – 1 credit.
UK New Construction 2018:

Aim and Benefits:
Proximity to amenities is a surprisingly valuable asset to a building. Having local shops, café’s, deli’s and parks close by to a development adds increased value to the tenant as the inhabitants will be happier when socialising, taking lunch or exercising. Hence why it is a benefit in BREEAM with credits awarded.
