Liveable Streets

What would you change about your local area? What would make a difference to you?

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.

Bethnal Green

We are speaking to residents and businesses about the final proposals for Liveable Streets in Bethnal Green. The last chance to have your say is Monday 25 November.


Join our workshops this month to help us design improvements to roads in Bow to better road safety and air quality. Capacity is limited so please book in advance.

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.

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.
