Liveable Streets

Liveable Streets

The Liveable Streets programme aims to improve the look and feel of public spaces in neighbourhoods across the borough and make it easier, safer, and more convenient to get around by foot, bike and public transport. We also want to reduce people making ‘rat runs’ and shortcuts through residential streets to encourage more sustainable journeys and to improve air quality and road safety.

Car Free Day

On Sunday 22 September as part of World Car Free Day, we are hosting an event in Roman Road, Bow with the Market area closed to traffic.

You can enjoy a wide range of activities from 10am to 5pm including street games, all ability cycling taster session and a free bike mechanic service.

Which areas are in the programme?

Seventeen areas across the borough have been identified for development. These areas have been chosen as they have not received recent substantial funding and improvements. The areas cover approximately 60 per cent of the borough.

How will the programme be delivered?

The Liveable Streets programme will be delivered over four years. Work in each of the 17 areas will take approximately 12 months from initiation to the start of construction.

In each area we will be asking the local community for their suggestions for improvements. Draft concept designs will be created based on this feedback and discussed with residents, designers and council staff. We will then create design proposals which will be presented to the community for comment before construction.

How do I get involved and have my say?

We have a blank piece of paper and want your creative ideas, thoughts and feedback to help shape plans for your area. 

Visit our Liveable Streets engagement page for how to get involved and have your say.
