This way to better streets

Streets are hard-working spaces. They balance a wide range of uses, communicate values and signify the transformation of neighbourhoods, towns and cities. To be sustainable and fit for purpose in the 21st century, streets need to respond to the demands of climate change and shifts in culture. CABE has reviewed 10 streets, looking at design development and implementation to unlock the lessons learnt. They provide an insight into recent developments in street design. This briefing summarises the findings.

This way to better streets is part of CABE's Design better streets campaign.
