Manual for Streets

Seminar Content

Planning is one of the biggest challenges for architects working in Northern Ireland and one of the most problematic aspects of the planning process is transport. A revised Manual for Streets is set to be published early in 2022 and the Department for Infrastructure has indicated that it will be adopted in Northern Ireland. Karen McShane takes at how this compares to the current guidance in operation in Northern Ireland and what changes might be in store.

This seminar will cover:

  • Making the best of existing approach to street design in Northern Ireland
  • Manual for Streets 2
  • Potential changes to Manual for Streets
