This consultation is opening soon.
Streets for All
This document provides updated practical advice for anyone involved in planning and implementing highways and other public realm works in sensitive historic locations. It sets out means to improve public spaces without harming their valued character, including specific recommendations for works to surfaces, street furniture, new equipment, traffic management infrastructure and environmental improvements.
The advice draws on the experience of Historic England’s planning teams in the development of highways and public realm schemes. Case studies show where highways works and other public realm schemes have successfully integrated with and enhanced areas of historic or architectural sensitivity.
The national advice is supported by documents setting out key issues for the public realm in each of the nine regions. These include case studies of successful public realm works, many of which were informed by the earlier editions of Streets for All published between 2000 and 2006, which these documents will replace.
The advice has been updated to take into account technical developments, as well as updates to government policy and guidance.
To access copies of the regional documents follow the link below to the consultation draft of the National Streets for All document.
The consultation closes on Thursday 9 November 2017.
