Thanks to everyone who said YES to a vehicle-free Oxford Street

The consultation is now closed

TfL and Westminster are now analysing responses to the consultation for Oxford Street West.

A further consultation for Oxford Street East is due later in the year.

We will continue to work closely with TfL and Westminster City Council to ensure the final plans put people first.

Oxford Street - the story so far

Oxford Street

After many years campaigning, with our supporters and Westminster Living Streets Group, we are thrilled that Oxford Street is set to be transformed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

In the run up to the 2016 mayoral election the then candidate responded to our campaign by pledging to pedestrianise Oxford Street.

The street will now be pedestrianised in three phases, with a series of consultations to gather opinions and assess support.

It is important to respond to every consultation to make our voices heard.

This is a new phase of the consultation

If you responded to the previous consultation where ideas were gathered on the future of the street, you still need to take part in this phase which is looking for feedback on the specific plans unveiled by the Mayor and Westminster City Council.


Say Yes to the proposals now




Walking Cities: London

Living Streets has seven principles on which it has been campaigning on the future of Oxford Street

1 Make Oxford Street a world-class visitor and business destination - a great place to be and walk

2. Removal of all motor traffic with access to buses and taxis a short walk away 

3. Accessible to all, regardless of age or disability

4. A safe environment, day and night

5. Provision of a parallel high quality east-west cycle route

6. Careful consideration of the impact on the wider West End 

7. Consolidated deliveries limited to off peak times
