Using TfL’s on-line Healthy Streets tools to improve streets for cyclists and pedestrians

By Lucy Saunders

On Monday 5 February, 7.30 – 9pm at Islington Town Hall, Upper Street N1 2UD

All London borough campaigners welcome – no booking necessary.

Lucy Saunders is a public health specialist who developed the Healthy Streets approach and its 10 Indicators for TFL. She has now taken the lead in developing a set of tools to ensure the approach is used when new schemes are proposed. The idea is that TFL will require boroughs to use the Healthy Streets checklist to get funding. This could be transformative.

This session is aimed at helping campaigners across London to understand how they can use the on-line Healthy Streets tools that have been developed at TfL. Local activists will find them useful when pressing London boroughs to submit well thought out, high quality Liveable Neighbourhood Programme bids and in assessing the likely effectiveness of any other road and public realm schemes they are drawing up.
