Manual for Streets 2: Wider Application of the Principles

Read document description

Streets and roads make up around three-quarters of all public space – their design, appearance, and the way they function have a huge impact on the quality of people’s lives. Manual for Streets 2 - Wider Application of the Principles is the result of collaborative working between the Department for Transport and the transportation industry. It is an excellent demonstration of what can be achieved when Government works in partnership with professional industry representatives. The aim of the document is to extend the advantages of good design to streets and roads outside residential areas and to provide an environment that improves the quality of life. By rethinking the way high streets and non-trunk roads are designed, the fabric of public spaces and the way people behave can be changed. It means embracing a new approach to design and breaking away from inflexible standards and traditional engineering solutions. The new guide does not supersede Manual for Streets; rather it explains how the principles of the first document can be applied more widely. The guide further integrates the fundamentals of “Link and Place”, allowing designers to set the right design strategy for the particular nuances of busier streets. It also outlines a process to deliver the Governments new de-cluttering agenda. The flexible and pragmatic guidance will assist all professionals involved in regeneration, development and highway management with a toolkit of approaches and methods that address the challenges on our busier streets.

Policies and Good Practice Handbook

Read document description

The Policies and Good Practice Handbook is a reference tool for authorities in preparing and developing their LTPs and will be updated on a regular basis. It is not part of the statutory guidance. Given the number of links, authorities will need to prioritise according to their needs. Although the Handbook is categorised by policy area for simplicity, it is important to note that more can be achieved by linking these policies and work areas to maximise the impacts of the policy intervention as well as budgets.

Guidance on Local Transport Plans

Read document description

This document is statutory Guidance to support local transport authorities in producing Local Transport Plans.1 The Guidance applies to local transport authorities in England outside of London required to produce a Local Transport Plan under the Transport Act 2000, as amended by the Local Transport Act 2008. The statutory framework for Local Transport Plans is explained in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 sets out the national policy framework within which LTPs should be developed, including the national transport goals and challenges, the changes in wider legislation and policy which affect local transport, and in particular the new relationship between central and local Government as set out in the Local Government White Paper in 2006. The national goals and challenges replace the shared priorities of LTP2 guidance. But these priorities - accessibility planning, congestion, air quality and road safety - will continue to be essential elements of LTPs. Chapter 4 of this Guidance sets out practical advice on how local authorities should develop and deliver their plans. Specific policies and best practice are not part of the statutory Guidance but are referred to in the accompanying Policy and Best Practice Handbook
