This way to better residential streets
A briefing on residential street design aimed at planners, urban designers and highway professionals.
Too many of the neighbourhoods where people live are structured around cars. This needs to change.
This briefing investigates residential street design using examples from England and Scotland. It identifies common problems, explains how good design helps to connect and structure neighbourhoods – and makes recommendations for improvement.
It is aimed at planners, urban designers and highways professionals. It will also be of interest to councillors, developers and anyone else concerned with the quality of new residential neighbourhoods.
