The first of the eleven pilot DIY Street projects started in April 2007 with the majority finishing in March 2010. These projects were part funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation with additional revenue match funding and the capital budget coming from Local Authorities, Housing Associations and TFL.
The pilot projects were delivered through a partnership approach between Sustrans, the residents and local partners which include Councils and housing associations. In many cases, a wide array of Council departments became involved, including: housing and/or regeneration, neighbourhood planning, transport planning, highways maintenance, highways engineering, arboriculture, parks, arts and children’s services.
