More than 7,000 Living Streets supporters said they backed plans for a transformed Oxford Street. The majority of responses to TfL and Westminster City Council's consultations on the future of Oxford Street supported proposals to transform the street.
Despite this, the leadership of Westminster Council has announced it will no longer support plans to make Oxford Street traffic-free.
Thousands of Living Streets supporters made it heard that a traffic-free Oxford Street is a cleaner, healthier and more profitable Oxford Street. We’re not going to stop saying it; we’re just going to turn the volume up.
We hope you join us.

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.
