Important news - Changes to shared space guidance
Department for Transport have requested, that Local Authorities paused the new shared space schemes. These are the schemes which include a level surface, where the kerb between the road and the pavement is removed. This pause will allow them to carry out research and produce updated guidance. They have also suspended the guidance note Local Transport Note 1/11: Shared Space while this work takes place.
Buckinghamshire County Council has made the decision to implement the pause on shared space schemes, with the following exemptions:
- Raised junctions, speed tables etc.
- Toucan, pelican crossings etc.
- Cul-de-sacs and closes serving 25 properties or less
- Schemes where the contract to construct has already been awarded
