This article analyses the shared space and the post-politics of environmental change through the example of vision-impaired people in London. It shows that their diverse needs are barely recognised or given a platform to influence shared space policy. It is suggested that their marginalization is part of a postpolitical condition, in which deliberative techniques, such as public consultation, are part of a process to manage those that dissent from the preferred policy choice—i.e. shared space. It concludes that an implication is the depoliticisation of shared space policy in which the unequal, and unjust, ways in which urban design impacts on vision-impaired people are neither articulated nor recognised by formal policy programmes
