Poole: Streetscapes Design Strategy Guidance Manual

Poole: Streetscapes Design Strategy Guidance Manual

The Masterplan for Poole’s Central Area Regeneration (refer to section 1.3) provides a framework for development for the next twenty years. It also defines the need for a coherent strategy for the design of the streetscape around the new roads and developments. The council commissioned this ‘Streetscape Design Strategy and Design Guidance Manual’ (referred to as ‘the Streetscape Manual’) to direct and inform the design and construction of the public realm associated with the regeneration. It will assist future developers and designers to create coherent places, routes and spaces that will complement their buildings and add a new and valued public realm to the community of Poole. The manual is divided into eight PDFs; 1.Introduction, 2.Landscape, 3.Street Furniture and Signage, 4. Lighting, 5. Art, 6. Applications of Guidance, 7. Appendix, 8. Cross-Sections,   (May 2004)
