Streets For All

Greater Manchester’s new “Streets for All” approach is a great example of joined up planning and delivery to provide streets which are:

Welcoming, green and safe spaces for all people, enabling more travel by walking, cycling and public transport while creating thriving places that support local communities and businesses.

Streets for All has the potential to support more successful high streets and local centres; safer and cleaner local neighbourhoods; and streets which are greener and more resilient to climate change.

By bringing a Streets for All approach together with good place-making and public service delivery, we can start to deliver 15-minute neighbourhoods across Greater Manchester, which improve access to services for everyone, without needing to use a car.

This co-ordinated and holistic approach to developing our infrastructure, public service reform and service delivery has the potential to tackle the climate emergency, reduce inequalities and improve the economic success of our local centres.
