Ambitious plans for the transformation of Oxford Street have now been released.
The release of the plans and a public consultation follows our long-running campaign to pedestrianise one of the UK’s most iconic streets.
We have until 17 December to say YES to these plans to ensure the complete removal of traffic from Oxford Street.
Air pollution on Oxford Street is four-times the legal limit
Once a week

Currently Oxford Street is dangerously overcrowded and polluted. We’re delighted that the Mayor’s plans propose the complete removal of all motor traffic from Oxford Street, making the area safe and accessible to everyone.
This is a critical time. Opposition to the transformation remains, so we need as many people as possible to say YES to a vehicle-free Oxford Street – without your backing the pedestrianisation of Oxford Street will not happen.
Simply answer Yes to question 1 on the first page of the survey to say you support the proposal to make Oxford Street vehicle-free.
If you have more time, we encourage you to comment in more detail on the proposals. Living Streets is supporting:
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.
