This chapter draws on the experience of over 25 years of pedestrianisation schemes to see what lessons can be learnt about how schemes should be designed and implemented. Aspects considered include a) the use of street furniture, b) the space requirements of moving and stationary pedestrians, c) the lack of accessibility to privately owned areas, d) the degree of segregation from traffic, e) footpath networks, f) recreational routes and g) provision for the disabled. Examples are given of a successful and unsuccessful schemes. A list of recommendations is drawn up. For the covering abstract see IRRD 877084.
