We have put together a range of possible solutions to the issues that were raised during the co-discover phase of engagement.
We've themed our toolkit and have split them into the following three groups:
We've provided cards for each of the solutions with information on what they are, how they can help, what the drawbacks may be, and whether they could be trialled with temporary materials to understand how they work.
The cards also have a star rating so that you can compare them with each other. These ratings are indicative and help act as conversation starters.
We introduced these ahead of community design workshops that took place in the autumn 2022, so that you could start thinking about what you'd like to see in your area.
When combined these solutions can help balance how streets are used for people and traffic.
We're currently applying a technical lens to all the suggestions that came in and look forward to sharing a plan which makes these work together to meet needs of local people. Check out the project timeline
The community survey tells us that the area is not pedestrian friendly, streets feel stressful and are difficult to cross.
The solutions show a range of measures that could be used to address these problems on main roads and include:
Our community survey tells us that people feel the area is not pedestrian friendly, has too much traffic, and is unsafe for walking and cycling.
Our traffic data shows that there is a high level of traffic on residential streets. This can often be a barrier to people feeling safe on the street.
These local street potential solutions are designed to change how traffic accesses the area while stopping through traffic. These measures may not be appropriate for every street. They are most effective when used in combination across the whole area. They include:
Our engagement also tells how much people love their neighbourhood, especially the parks, green spaces and the sense of belonging.
However, people also suggested that improving road safety, parks and green spaces and personal safety would make their area an even better place to live.
We've developed a range of solutions that build on what people love and to respond to their concerns.
