Streetscape project

New Walk, Leicesterto demonstrate that it is possible to manage traffic safely at the same time as enhancing the public realm. At a follow-up workshop, it was agreed that there was still the need for guidance, specifically tailored for EHTF Members covering the wide range of issues which impact on the streetscape and how a less cluttered environment might be achieved.

The Historic Core Zone Project -almost 10 years ago - demonstrated that historic towns could lead the way, and since then many organisations and projects have followed, including the 'Manual for Streets' published earlier in the year. A range of advice is now available but, it was agreed, this needs to be brought together into a coherent directory format and this task group will work on during the rest of this year. It is planned to launch the result early in 2008.
