Local Transport Note 1/11
- Department for Transport (DfT)

'Shared Space' is a design approach that seeks to change the way streets operate by reducing the dominance of motor vehicles, primarily through lower speeds and encouraging drivers to behave more accommodatingly towards pedestrians.
This Local Transport Note is mainly concerned with the use of shared space on links. While it focuses on high street environments, many of its principles will apply to other types of shared space. It is aimed at assisting those designing and preparing street improvement and management schemes. Particular emphasis is placed on stakeholder engagement and inclusive design, where the needs of a diverse range of people in terms of disability, age, etc. are properly considered at all stages of the development process, and on sustainable design where future maintenance needs are considered as part of the design process.
This guidance is eagerly awaited by many designers and local authorities in the UK.
