London - Kensington and Chelsea - Streetscape Guide

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's Streetscape guide is a practical manual for highways engineers, planners, developers and everyone with an interest in the street environment. The guide incorporates the design lessons learnt during the award winning Kensington High Street project that are now being developed in other parts of Kensington and Chelsea, including nationally important locations such as Exhibition Road and Sloane Square. The guide challenges the conventional approach to street management with its "less is more" philosophy.

Part one introduces the concepts of streetscape and explains the policies and standards adopted by the Council. It goes on to deal with individual elements of streetscape design and their application in traffic schemes.

Part two contains detailed specifications and standard details.
