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
We create better quality places which are safer and more attractive to spend time in and travel through
We support the need for change in local communities
We make it easier and safer for more people to walk, cycle and wheel for everyday journeys
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 behaviour change measures
4. A framework for monitoring and evaluation of the project
Sustrans Scotland’s Street Design programme 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.
We are no longer accepting applications to our 2020-2021 Street Design programme. Please sign up to our newsletter if you would like to receive notifications when the programme reopens.

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.
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.
