Meeting at Uni in relation to the Ethics (13th July):

- narrowed scope of research down to the urban morphology of different street scapes in correlation to speed environments. This has been considered in the amendments in the ethics proposal.
- preparation of response to ethics in relation to issues raised, includes choice of cases based on connection and previous experience in these countries. Partners can be named.
Forms and response:
Smith Sutton (Ambiguity of play) detailed typology of play will be useful to create subcategories based on Callois 4 types of play. This can make the coding and observation much more structured and easier to analyse.

Reasoning behind subunits
Focus on street environments only. Based on research findings on the correlation with traffic speed (Sauter and Huettenmoser, 2008), streets with higher place functions have been chosen for the research (Department for Transport (UK), 2010).
- Pedestrian zone
- Shared space/ path
- residential streets
