Abstract

This debate will be of particular interest to transport planners, spatial planners, urban designers and anyone interested in the future of our streets and our towns and cities. The ‘shared space’ approach to street design has become very influential in the UK in recent years, with the Department for Transport recently issuing guidance to local authorities on how to apply the principles (Local Transport Note 1/11). The basic idea is that emphasising place qualities and avoiding highway elements and demarcations between vehicles and pedestrians can improve the street environment, lower speeds and reduce the dominance of motor traffic.
