About the Streetscape Design Manual
The purpose of the Streetscape Design Manual is to raise the standard of street works that take place within Camden.
The Manual sets standards for the Council’s own works, but it is also intended as a guide for contractors, developers, public utility companies and other private agencies.
The Streetscape Design Manual is a full-colour document, over 100 pages long, with comprehensive use of photos and drawings, to complement the detailed text. The Manual covers a wide range of topics, varying in depth, from general issues of conservation to detailed instructions in the use of footway materials.
The Manual is designed to complement other existing guidance and regulatory documents (e.g. Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002), filling in the ‘gaps’ where necessary, particularly where Camden has a preferred design within permitted variances.
