Manual for Streets Workshop: Manchester

Organiser: Places Matter!
Location: Chinese Arts Centre, Thomas Street, Manchester, M4 1EU
Phone: 0151 703 0135

Manual for Streets, published by the Department for Transport, gives advice for the design of streets in England and Wales. It represents a strong Government and Welsh Assembly commitment to the creation of sustainable and inclusive public spaces.

There is a need to transform the quality of streets, and this requires a new approach to their provision. The Manual is aimed at any organisation or discipline with an interest in streets, ranging from access officers to the emergency services. The importance of joint working among practitioners is a key feature of the Manual.

This workshop will give an overview of the Manual for Streets and outline the principles of successful street design. Each workshop focuses on a local and relevant case study site, providing hands-on guidance and expertise.

This workshop is to be presented by Martin Stockley, STOCKLEY
