Shared_Space.JPG

Overview

This is a one day course looking at the interaction between streetscape policy and practice and road safety issues.

Many schemes have both streetscape and road safety implications and it is important to be able to identify any potential conflicts and to be able to balance these in making design decisions.

Aims and Objectives

The course will examine the principles of both streetscape and road safety. It will highlight areas of potential conflict together with areas of common benefit.

It will look at principles and practice in some case studies and some provide examples of streetscape policies. Training will be provided by a mixture of short lectures, case studies and workshops. Delegates will participate in group workshops giving them a hands on approach to the subject and the confidence to put into practice what they have learnt during the course.
