Street Design in Scotland

Funded by the Scottish Government, Sustrans Scotland’s Street Design Programme is an award-winning design and engagement service, empowering communities to transform their neighbourhoods and urban spaces. We know that spaces designed around people are good for walking, cycling and also for our physical and social health.

What outcomes can be achieved through a Street Design project?

  • stronger communities
  • more walking, cycling and wheeling

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

  • concept design
  • fully engaged community
  • recommendations on behaviour change measures
  • monitoring and evaluation framework.

The scheme is open to local authorities, constituted community groups, other public agencies and statutory bodies can be the lead applicant. Applications that demonstrate a partnership approach will score more highly.

All applicants are required to demonstrate that the local authority supports the application.

Battlefield: creating a Place for People (Street Design), Glasgow City Council
Building on from previous consultations to re-design the junction around Battlefield Rest, we will be looking to widen the scope and involve the community to help create designs to enable the area to feel safer and easier to travel through and more attractive to spend time in. 

Raploch Street Design Project, Stirling Council/Community Links PLUS
Working in collaboration with Stirling City Council and as part of the wider Community Links PLUS project across Stirling, this project focuses on placemaking and creating active travel links on Raploch Road, including the junction to Drip Road. 

Tilly-Wood Street Design Project, Aberdeen City Council
Following on from the street audit on Hayton Road, carried out by Living Streets, we are looking to tackle an increase in traffic between the two communities of Tillydrone and Woodside. Through artwork and interventions, we seek to strengthen the connection and active travel links between the two communities, currently severed by a railway line.
