Involving the Public and Other Stakeholders

Read document description

The purpose of these guidelines is to encourage and enable practitioners to engage more effectively with those who stand to be most directly affected by the work they undertake. Whether in relation to policy, strategy or scheme design, involving the public and other stakeholders can result in many practical benefits, and it is important that practitioners appreciate these benefits rather than consider that ‘consultation’ is simply an ideological and/or a legal burden placed on them from on high.

Designing for Walking

Read document description

This document explains how facilities for walking should be designed, following on from how they are planned, which is covered in Planning for Walking. Well-designed facilities that follow desire lines, are clutter-free, and are legible to all users will assist in enabling walking journeys and improve the experience of those already walking. The design of facilities should also consider the volumes of people walking along (actual or desired) or crossing streets, and the solutions will depend on a variety of considerations. The needs of all users should be carefully taken into account and prioritised as appropriate.

Planning for Walking

Read document description

This Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) guideline Planning for Walking: • describes the characteristics of pedestrian journeys, • lists the benefits of walking, • identifies factors that discourage walking and how they can be overcome, • summarises the legal framework that applies to pedestrians and • outlines the way that plans and strategies for pedestrian travel are developed. As it is a web-based publication that can be modified relatively easily, CIHT would welcome examples that build on the content of this guidance for inclusion in further guidance on the subject. These guidelines are complemented by another CIHT document, Designing for Walking (CIHT, 2015), which covers the design and evaluation of facilities for pedestrians
