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.
Our previous Street Design projects have demonstrated the following outcomes:
- Stronger communities
- More walking, cycling and wheeling
- Better quality places
- Support the need for change
How can Street Design help you?
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
Who can apply?
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.

Street design 2018/19 Projects
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. Find out more about Battlefield.
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. Find out about Raploch.
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. Find out more about Tilly-Wood.
