We are pleased to announce we have today launched a new website at http://www.manual-for-streets.co.uk
Manual for Streets was published by the Department of Transport in 2007 it replaced Design Bulletin 32, first published in 1977, and its companion guide Places, Streets and Movement.
Manual for Streets 2 – Wider Application of the Principles, a companion guide to Manual for Streets, was published by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation in September 2010.
Manual for Streets updates the link between planning policy and residential street design. It refocuses on the place function of residential streets, giving clear guidance on how to achieve well-designed streets and spaces that serve the community in a range of ways.
Our website has been written to enable visitors to consider an overview of both these documents and how they are utilised by a Highway Engineer to assist Clients with their Highway Planning Applications.
