City of London’s Lunchtime Streets 2021: Carter Lane

Cross River Partnership’s Healthy Streets Everyday (HSE) Programme has helped fund the return of Lunchtime Streets in the City of London to celebrate the reopening of businesses and hospitality premises following the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative saw streets in the Square Mile transformed into spaces for activities through the months of August and September 2021; weekly closures and activities were held on Cheapside (each Wednesday) and Carter Lane (each Thursday). This included free on-street walking and cycling activities such as cycle security marking and Dr Bike sessions, as well as led walks of the local area and live music. There were also public information stalls so that people could learn more about the local area.

The initiative has had the following impacts:

  • 48 people attended walking tours highlighting quieter streets
  • 60 people engaged by Cycle Confident about cycle training
  • 102 bikes security marked by City of London Police
  • 210 bikes checked by Dr Bike service
