A colleague and I will shortly start research on the
attitudes towards rear lanes in Sydney, Australia.
The outcome is intended to be a set of design guidelines
for safe, user friendly lanes in new housing developments.
Any advice on US, Canadian or other research which will
help inform our research - and help our arguements that lanes
are a 'good thing' in higher density housing - would be
greatly appreciated.
