Britain's Female-friendly Streets

The three year project, funded by the Women’s Design Service, will offer urban design ideas to make streets safer for women.

"Ideas discussed in meetings between Prescott’s office and the WDS include better street lighting and repainting alleyways and underpasses to make them brighter. In addition to reducing the height of public hedgerows, the bottoms of hedges could also be clipped to deter anyone from lying in wait under them."
