Polnoon Masterplan: Idea to Design - Residential Streets Project



housing publication graphicresidential streets publication graphicThe aim was to take the Scottish Government's design advice, in particular PAN 76 Residential Streets (to be replaced by Designing Streets) and apply it in practice, with the long term ambition to build a Conservation Area of Tomorrow. The result would be to create a safe and attractive streetscape, as opposed to applying a standard solution. This is because the design of new residential streets can promote better quality living environments for everyone. To help achieve this the ethos was to:

  • Turn the theory into reality
  • Design streets as places not as movement corridors.
  • Change the approach towards street design in new developments.
