2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results

Bromley has the third lowest score for Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, and no commitment from the council to implement any schemes. Whilst some boroughs forge ahead with 20mph plans, Bromley’s 5% of borough-managed roads with a 20mph speed limit has remained unchanged since the Scorecard’s inception in 2019 (TfL, however, has plans for delivering 20mph on roads they control in Bromley). Bromley has the lowest CPZ coverage score of all London boroughs and second lowest bus priority coverage (a mere 2%). Not surprisingly with so few CPZs, Bromley has high car ownership, with 103 cars registered per 100 households (HHs). Compare this to outer London borough Greenwich with 65 cars registered/100 HHs, and best performing borough Islington with 32/100 HHs. Bromley does well in one half of the Schools Provision metric with a score over 60% on the schools STARS behaviour change programme, but not in the other half of this metric: with just 4% of schools with a School Street. We wish the outlook was brighter for this borough, but without serious ambition from the council, Bromley will continue to languish at the bottom end of the Scorecard.

"Bromley Council's Portfolio Holder for Transport, Councillor Nicholas Bennett, has recently stated publicly that "Bromley does not recognise the value of most measures included in the Healthy Streets Scorecard." Bromley Living Streets, a local group of Living Streets (the national charity for everyday walking), look forward to finding out from him the reasons he has taken this position and we also look forward to finding ways to work collaboratively with him to improve road safety and air quality in London Borough of Bromley."

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.
