Streets for People - connecting community opinion and ideas about sustainable travel to neighbourhood improvements.
Streets for People update October 2017 - Public consultation open from Monday 16 October until end of November. Go here to have your say
What changes would you make to your local streets to encourage you to cycle more, walk more or let the kids play in the street?
That's what we've been asking residents in three areas across the city as part of our Streets for People programme. The areas are:
- Heaton and Ouseburn
- Arthurs Hill and Fenham
Using funding that can only be spent on changes to promote walking, cycling and sustainable travel, we have up to £3m to spend on projects in these communities.
Over a number of months a team of urban designers have been working with local residents in these areas to see what improvements they would like to see in their streets so they are safer and much better for everyone to enjoy.
We've had a great response and we've finalised the responses and the public consultation is now open. Go here for more info.
Ideas have included traffic calming measures near schools, walking routes to school and parks, safer crossings, nicer green spaces for local people to enjoy and local cycle routes to link up the wider citywide network.
Keep up to date with all of the developments here.
