Streets for All: A guide to the management of London's streets

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.

Streets for All - A London Streetscape Manual - is a guide to the management of London's streets for all those responsible in any way for their appearance, and to show all users how the streets they use could be.

The purpose of this guide is to make the streets of London attractive, safe and enjoyable spaces for people. It builds on the 1999 report of the Urban Task Force Towards an Urban Renaissance and forms an important part of the work of English Heritage and the other co-sponsors to secure access for all and sustainable community regeneration.

Although the guide relates solely to London, the principles of good practice are universally applicable.
