Plans to pedestrianise Oxford Street in jeopardy.
Act now!

More than 7,000 Living Streets supporters said they backed plans for a transformed Oxford Street. Now we need everyone to restate their support.

Earlier this year, two-thirds of responses to TfL and Westminster City Council's consultation on the future of Oxford Street supported proposals transforming the street and its surrounding areas.

However local councillors are reportedly cooling on the idea. So we must mobilise again.

Sign up now so we can finish the job together.

Pedestrianisation is the only answer. Redesigning the street around people – not vehicles – will ensure Oxford Street’s future as a world-class destination, rejuvenating the retail offer and securing prosperity and jobs in the area.

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.

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
