Call for information for our 2024 Scorecard

At the end of last month, the Healthy Streets Scorecard team sent out requests for data for the 2024 Scorecard to all London boroughs.

We have asked for input on School Streets, LTNs, Controlled Parking Zones, Cycle lanes and Bus lanes.

If you have information to share about new (in the last year) schemes in your borough we would value your input, as not all councils respond. We ask you check the maps (links in paragraph above) to make sure we haven’t already included the scheme.

London Cycling Campaign’s Mayoral campaign launch, coming soon!

Look out for LCC’s Mayoral campaign launching early April with a video themed to fit with the campaign on how much London has embraced cycling and how joyous it is. The film will be joined by a series of social media activities we’re asking LCC members, supporters and allies to join in with all around how much London loves cycling (it’s now an utterly mainstream mode of transport with ~1.26m journeys cycled daily, equivalent to a third of all tube journeys), and at the end of April, a big ride around iconic London landmarks.
