Healthy Streets Everyday
Number of Project Partners: 16
Lead Borough: London Borough of Islington
Working collaboratively with a range of partners, Cross River Partnership is co-ordinating and developing this ambitious programme to create the healthy streets that Londoners deserve. Our partners include 16 London boroughs (see below), Business Improvement Districts (Hammersmith and The Northbank), Landowners (Cadogan Estates), Academic Institutions (King’s College London and University of Westminster), and Charities (Global Action Plan, Car Free London and The Illuminated River Foundation).
In our first year, our partners have already contributed to making World Car Free day in London the biggest of its kind with over 300 events. A high proportion of these activities were community led. An opportunity exists to work even more closely with communities to make their streets valued ‘health assets’.
“We no longer just nod to each other in the street, but have real conversations. It’s turned neighbours into friends and we are very grateful for the opportunity.” – Reflections from a Greenwich resident who closed their street on Car Free Day
The Healthy Streets Everyday project is delivering six key workstreams:
- Streetscape improvements
- New traffic regulations to make streets more pedestrian-friendly
- Car-free events
- Guidance on how to create Healthy Streets Everyday
- Evaluation and monitoring of project interventions
