'Shared Space' presentation for Minehead
3:00pm Sunday 15th December 2013 in News
AN URBAN design consultant will be visiting Minehead in January to give a presentation on the ‘Shared Space’ potential for the town.
Ben Hamilton-Baillie will be giving the presentation at the Beach Hotel on January 8 starting at 6.30pm.
‘Shared Space’ is an approach which seeks to minimise the separation between vehicle traffic and pedestrians, often by removing features such as curbs, road surface markings, traffic signs and regulations.
Minehead Vision manager Stephen Hooper said: “The presentation is open to everyone. Residents and businesses in both areas are particularly encouraged to attend to find out how this design approach can bring economic, social and environmental benefits.”
