The Healthy Streets Design Check is a tool for designers to score existing streets and proposed street designs against the 10 Healthy Street Indicators.

In doing so, the tool will help designers across the country to ensure that future street developments support a healthy population.

Objectively scoring the health of our streets

Healthy Streets created this tool for the Department of Transport.

Its objective scoring system supports designers in applying the Government’s recent guidance - Local Transport Note 1/20 - and balancing the needs of people walking, cycling and spending time on streets.

A collaborative approach

The tool was developed with input and feedback from designers, engineers, policy makers and public health specialists. Sustrans provided specialist input on designing for cycling.

This collaborative approach has enabled Healthy Streets to ensure the tool will work for streets across England.
