This CIHT webinar will explore how to create better streets and look at the wide range of benefits that streets can deliver for people. Streets must be inclusive for all and consider how those with disabilities can navigate them. Streets must be, and feel, safe. Streets fulfil wider aims for both social and economic well-being.
This joint session will run through the highs and lows of shared space design in the UK bringing our audience up to date with the latest position. Phil Jones and Annabel Keegan have worked closely with the DfT, CIHT and other bodies over the years developing guidance on active travel and sympathetic street design. David McKenna, a Landscape Architect and Engineer, specialises in the design of Pedestrian Priority Streets and Squares delivering his first scheme in Caernarfon over 10 years ago. Using video footage, the presentation will concentrate on Frodsham Street, a Pedestrian Priority Street David designed in Chester.
Learn more about how shared space design has developed from the initial concepts introduced by Jan Gehl. Gain a better understanding the issues, challenges and opportunities different communities find in living with shared space schemes. Get up to date on the latest position of the DfT and discuss the recent Transport Scotland Research Report Inclusive Design in Town Centres and Busy Street Areas.
