Bradford City Centre Design Guide, Supplementary Planning Document, published in 2006, defines street hierarchy as: ‘The relative importance of different streets. This traditionally includes high streets that carry most through traffic and have the greatest number of shops, secondary streets that take traffic into each neighbourhood and have fewer shops and local streets that give access to each of the buildings. Today high streets are often pedestrianised and through traffic is carried on a new level of the hierarchy - the boulevard.’
