Manual for Streets (MfS) – they’re not just transport corridors


First published in 2007, the Department of Transport’s ‘Manual for Streets’ was praised for ‘radically changing designers’ and local authorities’ approach to residential street design for the better’.

You can download the manual, as well as the supporting evidence and research, from the Department’s website.

The Institute of Civil Engineers has recently produced a three page briefing document on the manual. A quicker read.
