Public Realm Guidance
The Council has adopted two related Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) on:
- Westminster Way - Public Realm Strategy Design Practice and Principles
- Trees and the Public Realm - A Tree Strategy for Westminster
These strategies address the challenges we face daily in managing the city's public realm. The Tree Strategy develops in detail the planting principles for different areas of the city at a finer grain than Chapter 10: 'Green spaces, squares and trees' in the Westminster Way Strategy.
Westminster Way takes on board the methodology for assessing pedestrian footway capacity in the Mayor of London's guidance called 'Pedestrian Comfort Guidance for London'.
