2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Disappointingly, Bexley has recorded its worst performance since the Scorecard began in 2019, coming a lowly 32nd of 33 boroughs. Low scores for 20mph (10% compared to other outer London boroughs Merton; 98% and Richmond; 100%), the worst score on bus priority (with just 1% of routes having priority), and the lowest score for Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, just 5% compared to outer London borough Waltham Forest at 48%. Bexley is one of only two London boroughs with no School Streets at all. Bexley was one of three boroughs that did not provide us with the data we requested for CPZ mapping, so we’ve had to extrapolate their score from 2021 data. Bexley must step up and commit to reducing car trips and enabling active and public transport.
The Healthy Streets Scorecard combine scores for ten indicators to create an overall Healthy Streets score for each borough. See the graph below for 2023 results (includes 2019 – 2022 results for comparison). For more detail visit the London-wide overview of the 2023 results. You can also:
Scorecard (factored score) chart explained
In the chart above, each borough has been given a factored score. Factor scores are composite variables which provide information about a borough’s placement on a scale. Factor scores are given by F=XB, where X is the indicator normalised score for a borough and B is the factor score coefficient (or weight). Each indicator is weighted as 1, or 0.5 if there are two parts to one indicator, for example Modeshare has a weighting of 1, Active travel – walking has a weighting of 0.5 and Active travel – cycling has a weighting of 0.5. The borough’s total factored score is the sum of all indicator factored scores which is then factored to 10 (multiplied by the number of indicators/10) to give a value on the scale between zero and 10. We can then compare boroughs against each other on the scale.
