Liveable Neighbourhoods

The Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS), sets out a vision for making active and sustainable transport the most appealing and practical choice for 80% of journeys in London by 2040.

Transport for London’s (TfL) Liveable Neighbourhoods programme has been created to fund projects in boroughs that will help deliver that vision, making streets more attractive, healthier and safer for walking, cycling and using public transport.

Newham Council will shortly be submitting a funding bid to TfL for the delivery of a Liveable Neighbourhoods scheme in the Freemasons Road area. We would like to hear what your priorities are for the area based on the ten Healthy Streets outcomes detailed below.

Ten Healthy Streets Outcomes

Healthy Streets Indicators

The ten outcomes are:

  • Pedestrians from all walks of life 

    The best test of a Healthy Street is whether there are people reflecting the full diversity of society on the street. Streets should be inviting for everyone to spend time and make journeys on foot, cycle or by public transport. Social norms influence active travel, people are more likely to walk and cycle when they see others doing the same.

  • Easy to cross 

    Streets without suitable crossing facilities make walking and cycling less appealing. They can be a significant barrier to some people travelling on foot or bike. The types of crossing needed will vary, but on all streets it should be easy for people of all ages and abilities to find a safe place to cross without having to go out of their way.

  • Shade and shelter 

    High winds, heavy rain, high temperatures and sun exposure can have a significant effect on people’s ability to travel actively and spend time in the street as well as their enjoyment. The need for shade and shelter will increase as the climate changes and London experiences more extreme weather.

  • Places to stop and rest 

    Lack of resting places can limit mobility for some people, particularly those who are ill, injured, older or very young. Ensuring there are places where people have room to stop or somewhere to rest benefits everyone, including local businesses, as people will be more willing to visit, spend time in, or meet other people on these streets.

  • Not too noisy  

    Motorised road traffic is a primary source of noise pollution in urban areas. This affects the health of people who walk, cycle, shop, work, study and live on noisy streets. Reducing traffic volumes and speeds, quieter vehicles and low noise road surfaces will all benefit health as well as improve the ambience of street environments, encouraging people to interact and travel actively.

  • People choose to walk, cycle and use public transport 

    Walking, cycling and using public transport should be the most attractive ways to travel, and making them more enjoyable will benefit  everyone, including those already travelling on foot, by bike or public transport. People walk and cycle on almost every street in London and do not always have an alternative travel option. This means even the streets with the heaviest traffic must be made more attractive to encourage walking and cycling.

  • People feel safe  

    People will be less willing to walk, cycle or use public transport if they feel unsafe on a street. The whole community should feel comfortable and safe from crime, intimidation or injury on any street day and night.

  • Things to see and do 

    People will be less willing to walk and cycle on streets that are visually unappealing or bland. People are more likely to travel actively when there are things to do locally and will also be less dependent on cars if shops and services are within walking distance.

  • People feel relaxed  

    People are more likely to walk or cycle if they feel relaxed and find it enjoyable. Good quality street design, a clean, well kept environment and plenty of plants can help create attractive and relaxing places to walk and cycle. Ensuring there is enough space so that people walking and cycling do not feel stressed is important, as is making sure people can find their way around.

  • Clean air  

    Improving air quality benefits everyone while also helping to reduce health inequalities. Citywide measures are needed but there are also local actions that can be taken. Anything that significantly reduces the amount of traffic on the road or reduces the number of high polluting vehicles will help improve local air quality and will contribute to any citywide measures.
