Public Realm

Welcome to

This website is about the design and delivery of the public realm: spaces in town and country, including streets and roads, where people live, work, interact and enjoy.

A topical example is the growing support for 20 miles per hour zones. The rewards of 20mph zones are obvious and you can help design and create your own 20mph zone. There are road safety benefits, and with incorporated landscape, an enhanced sense of place together with improved health and wellbeing. To help fill in some gaps, there are background studies and fact sheets.
