Quality of urban life covers places where people live and has both objective dimensions and subjective dimensions. Subjective dimensions reflect people’s feelings about objective socio-environmental conditions and people’s behaviors.

Measuring subjective dimensions is primarily through survey research with corresponding measures of objective conditions. International research on sustainable architecture ascertained the responsibilities of urban forms for buildings’ energy‐environmental performances, highlighting the necessity to broaden the field of intervention in urban design.

Furthermore, goals concerning the sustainable city increased design complexity, due to the involvement of different interrelated disciplines, which modified. Considering that environment is a set of interactions in the environment itself, economy and society, the article introduces public services indicators to evaluate urban environmental quality indicators.

22 indicators are described altogether with 7 (seven) related to public services. This paper describes the development of an area-based index of locational access to community services, facilities and amenities. The index enables comparisons to be made across urban neighbourhoods and provides a starting-point from which to identify relationships between opportunity structures in the local environment and residents' health and well-being.

Urban Environmental Management System An urban environmental management system (UEMS) builds on ideas similar to those in an EMS, however, it is a far more comprehensive system.

An UEMS deals with the overall ambient quality of the environment of the city, whoever or whatever is the cause of the impact. An EMS merely deals with in.

The chapter also introduces a multidimensional approach to studying environmental quality in terms of multicomponent constructs like residential satisfaction and affective quality of environments. It concludes with a multi‐place approach, considering people‐environment transactions with different places within the same urban environment.

In what ways does good design – in this case good urban design– produce economic and social value. What do high quality buildings and spaces give back, in hard financial and utilitarian terms, to those who fund and use them. Human activity is one of the main causes of environmental issues today.

The two main causes of pollutants in urban areas are transportation technologies such as the automobiles and power production technologies such as industrial heating and cooling and coal-burning power plants.
