Living Streets and London Cycling Campaign

In the run-up to the local elections, Living Streets and London Cycling Campaign teamed up to call on leaders to make it safer and more enjoyable for everyone to walk and cycle across London. 

Walking and cycling

The campaign was a success.  

  • 55% of newly elected borough leaders committed to a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhood
  • 7 boroughs have cross-party support for a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhood
  • 54% of boroughs currently without funding for a Liveable Neighbourhood have committed to submitting a high-quality bid over the course of this term

Living Streets and London Cycling Campaign are looking forward to working with all newly elected council leaders across London. Join us.

Cities around the world are nowadays competing on liveability. We want to see liveable neighbourhoods right across London where everyone can walk and cycle safely and happily. We look forward to working with boroughs across London to transform the city together and make it a truly world-class city to live in.

Joe Irvin, Chief Executive, Living Streets

We’re delighted that so many council leaders have pledged to undertake transformational projects to make their boroughs more liveable, by reducing motor traffic and/or introducing protected cycle lanes. This will not only make walking and cycling a safe and enjoyable choice for everyday journeys, but will help clean up the air their residents breathe and make it easier for everyone lead healthier lives.

Ashok Sinha, Chief Executive of LCC

Imagine a truly Liveable London. A city where:

  • It's enjoyable to walk and cycle your local trips
  • You can breathe fresh  air on streets free from congestion
  • Children can roam safely, and cycle and walk to school
  • There are relaxing places to stop, rest and talk with neighbours.

Together, we can build places all over London where our families, friends and communities are put first, and where motor traffic, pollution and congestion don't dominate our streets.

Places where everyone live well, breathe easy, walk and cycle safely and happily.
