Bus punctuality partnerships: guidance for local authorities and operators

Read document description

This guidance has been produced by DfT's Bus Punctuality Working Group, a stakeholder group set up to develop a more effective punctuality regime. It is informed by the experience of local authorities and bus operators around the country and offers a framework which local authorities and bus operators can use to work together to achieve results. It sets out why punctuality and reliability are important, and explains how a partnership approach can help to deliver high standards of punctuality. It contains examples of good practice which are already being used, together with a model which has been developed for use 'off the peg' or which can be adapted according to local circumstances, including a model data sharing agreement.

Vehicle Security Barriers within the Streetscape

Read document description

A Vehicle Security Barrier (VSB) is a physical security device that provides perimeter protection to a defined area and can also control vehicular access to that area. A VSB is used to mitigate various styles of criminal or terrorist vehicle-borne threat. This leaflet describes the main reasons behind the need to deploy a VSB and demonstrates how best to integrate them into the streetscape.

Understanding Place: Conservation Area Designation, Appraisal and Management

Read document description

This guidance sets out ways to manage change in a way that conserves and enhances historic areas through conservation area designation, appraisal and management. This document is based on Guidance on conservation area appraisals (English Heritage 2005) and Guidance on the management of conservation areas (English Heritage 2005) which were published as separate consultation documents. Comments in response to these consultations focused on the adoption of conservation appraisals and management plans within the planning system (which is a matter for local authorities and their communities). The principles of the approach were widely accepted and these documents have been used and referenced frequently in planning policy, development management and appeal decisions since their publication. There have been significant legislative and policy developments since the consultation documents were published and it is likely that more changes will follow. For this reason the guidance is a web-based document which provides a single source of information on conservation area designation, appraisal and management which will be revised as necessary on a regular basis.

Puffin Accident Study Report

Read document description

Puffin facilities were developed to replace Pelican crossings at mid-block sites and farside pedestrian signals at junctions. Research has shown that compared to existing pedestrian signal facilities, Puffin facilities can reduce both driver and pedestrian delay at junctions, and improve pedestrian comfort (particularly for older pedestrians and those with impaired mobility). Previous research has also indicated safety benefits. The aim of this study was to quantify the safety benefit.

Level 2 operational requirements for hostile vehicle mitigation

Read document description

The Level 2 Operational Requirement (OR) for Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) measures follows on from the Level 1 OR to provide a more detailed picture of the HVM scenario and issues faced. The Level 2 OR can be used to investigate both existing and proposed HVM measures and can highlight specific vulnerabilities that require mitigation or management attention.
