Shared Spaces

Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL1161, tabled on 7 July 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of the report on shared space Accidents by Design, whether they are considering an immediate moratorium on all existing shared spaces until an impact assessment has been undertaken.

Answered on

16 July 2015

The Government is not considering a moratorium on shared space schemes. It is entirely a matter for each local authority to decide what type of traffic management scheme is needed for the roads that they are responsible for, be this shared space or another type of scheme.
