The 1st, 2nd & 3rd Annual Sharing the Streets conferences held in Liverpool, Derby and London respectively attracted over 300 participants from the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands. Topics discussed included a broad range of subjects around the concept of better, more equitable and inclusive approaches to sharing the street.

The current financial pressure on budgets provides both a challenge and an opportunity to plan and deliver projects that have significant value at an affordable cost. This call for abstracts is an open invitation for planners and practitioners to demonstrate how this is being achieved.

Suggested topics:
  • Design, safety, quality & community auditing;
  • Stakeholder engagement;
  • Inclusive design catering for all;
  • Monitoring, outcomes & evaluating the benefits;
  • Freight access & kerb space;
  • Local design guides;
  • Whole life costing;
  • Case studies demonstrating innovation, including projects from outside the UK & Ireland,
  • Shared (level) surfaces;
  • International research & practice
