Good Practice Guide for Residential Development Roads

East Renfrewshire Council has produced a  Good practice guide (PDF) [3MB]  which sets out guidance for developers and designers for the provision of roads infrastructure. This includes the design and construction, of all new roads associated with residential development proposals within The East Renfrewshire Council area. 

The guide embraces the principles of the Scottish Government's policy document Designing Streets , and the Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland (SCOTS) National Roads Development Guide, offering interpretation of those policies within a local context.

The principal aims of the guide are to ensure that all roads are functional and safe for all users whilst, at the same time, setting out principles to be considered to ensure that appropriate road design/layouts are obtained to enable subsequent adoption by the Council as public roads.
