The planning of roads and footpaths has a major impact on the character, quality and safety of residential areas. It affects
the movement of traffic, including emergency and other services
arrangements for the parking of residents' and visitors' cars
the ease with which people, including those who are disabled, can get around
the layout of houses and their gardens
the provision for children's play and other outdoor activities
We have adopted the East Sussex County Council "Manual for Estate Roads 1995 edition, as amended" as our interim design guide for design and construction. We hope that the information it contains will help everyone involved with the design of both new developments and the renovation of older developments to create an environment which is attractive, convenient, safe and economical to construct and maintain.
