Streets for All: East Midlands

We are now (September 2017) consulting on revised Streets for All guidance. See our guidance consultations webpage for more details.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 9 November 2017.

This manual offers guidance on the way in which our streets and public open spaces are managed. These spaces, sometimes known as the ‘public realm’, range from city squares to country lanes. Their appearance is often the product of several different agencies each with its own priorities. A co-ordinated approach can help provide an environment that is safe, enjoyable and appropriate to its surroundings.

Although the guide relates to the East Midlands, the principles of good practice are universally applicable. Streets for All guides are available for each of England's regions.
