This paper reports the results of research into two recently completed retro-fit home zones. The findings illustrate how different factors, which include design quality, community consultation, funding and street typology, may impact upon the potential of home zones to meet their objective of improving liveability. Experiences of working with two Sheffield residential communities in the re-design of their street are also reported. The Sheffield case studies illustrate the potential of alternative design solutions which do not require the construction of a shared surface and which may, in certain circumstances, be more appropriate to the design context and in addressing community needs.
