Street Design

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.

We help nurture stronger 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 behavior change measures
  4. A framework for monitoring and evaluation of the project

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

Examples of our projects

Wick town centre, Sustrans Street Design programme
Wick town centre, Sustrans Street Design programme

This project aims to revitalise Wick high street making it more vibrant, more accessible, and more welcoming for people.

Delivered by Sustrans in partnership with The Highland Council, Royal Burgh of Wick Community Council, and Local Councillors, as part of the Town Centre Regeneration project, Wick Street Design will create opportunities for local people to get directly involved in developing the design ideas which have the potential to be transformed into a concept design.

The Hurlford Street Design Project is an exciting opportunity for local people to re-imagine the village centre.

Delivered by Sustrans Scotland’s Street Design team in partnership with Ayrshire Roads Alliance and colleagues in East Ayrshire Council the project stemmed from community desire to improve the current vehicle dominated street environment and under-used public space.

We support the need for change in local communities
