The Commission for Architecture and the Built

Environment (CABE) is Government’s advisor on
architecture, urban design and public space. Streets
are public spaces that we all use everyday; they can
deliver economic environmental and social benefits
for communities and they should be of the highest
design quality. Unfortunately established
development and management processes often
ignore design quality and result in spaces that don’t
work for people.
To begin to create streets fit for people we need to
develop thinking and encourage innovation.
Therefore we are delighted to sponsor this year’s
Streets Award; we see this as an opportunity to
celebrate and learn from those who are delivering
great streets. Brighton and Hove City Council have
made an ambitious commitment to delivering
flexible and enjoyable city streets. In New Road, the
wide carriageway and associated clutter left little
room for people, even though it is in the heart of
the cultural quarter. By working across departments
with talented designers, Brighton and Hove have
transformed New Road into a high quality flexible
space, which has witnessed a flourishing of formal
and informal cultural life, and has become a
destination in its own right.
