2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
100% of Camden’s roads are now 20mph, a significant commitment to reducing road danger in the borough. It has also made small but steady progress on introducing protected cycle track (8.7% in 2023, and the best inner London score, excluding the City), Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (23% in 2023, so some way to go to match Hackney on 69%) and controlled parking zones (96% coverage final scores).
Camden is the third-place borough overall in the Scorecard behind Islington and Hackney and was acknowledged as the top ‘Inner London borough performing better than expected based on housing density’. It has an ambitious healthy streets plan, and we look forward to more of that ambition translating into action over the coming year under the Safe Travel Camden project – including more School Streets schemes and other proposals.
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.
