  1. 1. 1How to Improve the Public Space of Acorn Road• Shared Space- Key principle is integration of different street uses and users- Physical alterations of the space will shape how people interact with thepublic realm- The design of shared space can be many things, but there will be equalitybetween transport modes without an overriding ‘right of way’- As a result civility and courtesy between all street users will surface

  6. 6. 6How to Improve the Public Space of Acorn Road• Create a Shared Space Street• Increase the ‘sense’ of safety- Level of demarcation between spaces and users will determine how it’s used- Use of design rather than signage to regulate driver speeds and reduce trafficvolumes (narrow carriageway, shop spill-outs, plantings, raised tables, etc.)- Design details like materials and lighting can determine how it’s used on a 24-hour basis

  12. 12. 12A Proposal to Consider• Shared space scheme with limited demarcation between carriageway andfootways, based on approximate dimensions: 2.om pavement on the South side 1.8m parking strip on South side 4.0m carriageway 4.1m pavement on North side with up to 2.0m ‘spill-out’ space forbusinesses• One-way vehicular movement east to west• Raised tables, or crosswalks, at the intersection of Larkspur, Sanderson,Osborne, and St. George’s• Develop the space adjacent to Oxfam for public use• Remove signage and de-clutter• Create an attractive atmosphere through plantings, street furniture, streetmaterials, and a lighting scheme
  13. 13. 13A Proposal to Consider• 2-hour parking in present free parking on neighboring streets• Maintain pick-up/drop-off or short-term parking in front of Tescos• Provide 2-disabled spaces on the South side of AcornWaitrose Survey Results:• 2,200 spaces within 400m of Waitrose site• 700 available to non-permit holders at various times• 150 available at all times• 55 within most accessible Acorn Road/St Georges Terrace area
