A People First Vision for London’s Streets26th October 2021 / Posted by Susannah Wilks
Cross River Partnership’s latest report ‘The Lived Experience of Our Streets: A People First Vision for London’s Streets’, produced by NOOMA Studio for the TfL-funded Central London Sub Regional Transport Partnership, sets a vision to create a more equitable and accessible street for all users across London.
Now presents a timely opportunity for London’s key players to work together to implements practical solutions to address issues regarding transport, footfall, environment and functionality of London’s street space.
This report aims to guide decision makers to put people at the centre of London’s street space, exploring four different street typologies across the London Boroughs of Camden, Lambeth, Wandsworth and Westminster and the lived experience of those who use London’s streets.
The report includes a Foreword by Keith Bottomley, Vice Chair of Policy at the City of London Corporation and Co-Chair of the CRP Board, alongside Simon Pitkeathley of Camden Town Unlimited and Euston Town BIDs.
“The question of how our streets look, feel and function is more important than ever. Fresh and radical thinking is needed to deliver accessible and inclusive streets that will support the Capital’s recovery from Covid-19, tackle carbon emissions, improve air quality and adapt to a changing climate.”
The report makes recommendations on how to balance the needs of different street users at different locations, including freight deliverers, pedestrians, cyclists and others. These will be developed further as part of CRP’s Defra-funded Clean Air Villages 4 programme.
