Detail

The ‘Manual for streets’ has won a Royal Town Planning Institute prize. The award recognises that the ‘Manual for streets’ is radically changing designers’ and local authorities’ approach to residential street design for the better. The ‘Manual for streets’ emphasises that streets should be places in which people want to live and spend time in, and are not just transport corridors. In particular, the manual aims to reduce the impact of vehicles on residential streets by asking practitioners to plan street design intelligently and proactively, and gives a high priority to the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transport.
