Street Reclaiming: Creating Livable Streets and Vibrant Communities by David Engwicht
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Imagine your street with fifty percent less traffic. Imagine drivers acting as guests on your street -- now transformed into a dynamic 'outdoor living room' with children playing and neighbours chatting. Dream no longer! Part social history and part community-activist handbook, Street Reclaiming celebrates the potential of our streets to become vibrant and prosperous centres of culture and community once again. International urban planner David Engwicht provides a step-by-step process to psychologically and physically reclaim our streets, starting with a simple 6-week program to reduce traffic by 30-50 per cent (without involving local officials), then introducing psychological reclaiming techniques and, finally, physical reclaiming: converting traffic space into community spaces that will enhance the social fabric of the neighbourhood.
