Consultation on Personal Safety Measures on Streets in England

1 September 2021

Streets are an essential part of people’s journeys, but it has become clear that many people, particularly women, feel unsafe using the street and experience harassment, intimidation or unwanted sexual behaviour in public spaces. This must be addressed if we are to make streets safe for everyone.

The consultation from the Department of Transport is seeking evidence/feedback to find out how the design, maintenance and operation of streets can be improved to make sure everyone feels safe and confident using them in their daily lives.
