Healthy Streets Guide

Front cover of the guide to healthy streets indicatorsThe Guide to the Healthy Streets Indicators from the UK provides information and checklists in an easy to use format. While it focuses on walkability without the express inclusion of people using wheeled mobility, it alludes to these users: “The design and management of streets should ensure they are open to everyone and that no one is excluded from walking or spending time on them.” The guide covers feelings of safety, places to stop and rest, not too noisy, shade and shelter, easy to cross roads, and pedestrians from all walks of life. Lots of good photos add to the ease of the read.
