Street Design in Scotland

Sustrans Scotland’s Street Design Programme is an award-winning design and engagement service, empowering communities to transform their neighbourhoods and urban spaces. The programme is funded by the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland.

What we do

We help nurture stronger communities.

We create better quality places which are safer and more attractive to spend time in and travel through.

We support the need for change in local communities.


Work with our Street Design team

We know that spaces designed around people are good for walking, cycling and also for our physical and social health.

In one year, our Street Design team will work in partnership with you to deliver four key elements:

1. Concept Design
2. A fully engaged community
3. Recommendations on behaviour change measures
4. A framework for monitoring and evaluation of the project
