Surrey Street Design Guide: Healthy Streets for Surrey

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No




1.    That the work undertaken by Create Streets - the latest draft of ‘Healthy Streets for Surrey’ be noted.


2.    That the aims and objectives of the draft guidance be supported.


3.    That stakeholder engagement be authorised.

Reason for decision:


Surrey County Council has a significant role in the design and implementation of new development, particularly in respect of streets specifically and transportation in general. As such, the County Council as the local Highway Authority advises the county’s Boroughs and Districts on the transportation implications of applications for planning permission. The Surrey Street Design Guide, ‘Healthy Streets for Surrey,’ is being produced in order to assist developers, the Boroughs and Districts and the community to understand what the County Council will be seeking when considering proposals. The aim is to deliver high quality, attractive, safe, accessible and sustainable development.

Before the County Council finalises this approach, it wishes to share it with stakeholders to give them the opportunity to comment on and to influence the guide, with the ultimate aim of achieving well-designed places.
