ROADWITCH: COMMUNITY STREET DESIGN
ROADWITCH (AKA The Roadwitch Trial) began as a bunch of Halloween pranks to make a residential street temporarily safer for an army of trick-or-treaters. Then that rolled into a Residents' Association formed to create Britain's only street redesign created entirely by residents, in association and main-funded by Sustrans, with additional mentoring by Ben Hamilton-Baille, Britain's leading shared-space design expert (and fantastic departed friend).
Ted Dewan acted as the project's lead designer and pain-in-the-ass.
As a result of all that, Ted is now a public speaker specialising in community involvement with roadspace redesign, and has been invited to speak at international urban design conferences.
