The main aim of this guide is to facilitate the creation of streets that promote greater social interaction and enjoyment while still performing successfully as conduits for movement. It is to be used predominantly for the design, construction, adoption and maintenance of new residential streets, but it is also applicable to existing residential streets that are subject to re-design. This new manual gives clear guidance on how to achieve well-designed streets and spaces that serve the community. It demonstrates the benefits that flow from good design and places a higher priority on pedestrians and cyclists. It challenges some established working practices and standards and encourages new ways of thinking in relation to creating successful neighbourhoods. It stresses the need for a fundamental culture change in the way streets are designed and adopted, including a more collaborative approach between the design professions and other stakeholders. MfS focuses on lightly-traffcked residential streets, but many of its key principles may be applicable to other types of street, for example high streets and lightly-traffcked lanes in rural areas. It is the responsibility of users of MfS to ensure that its application to the design of streets not specifcally covered is appropriate. MfS does not apply to the trunk road network. The design requirements for trunk roads are set out in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB).
