2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Croydon sits in 22nd place with a score of 3.06. It is placed 8th out of the 19 Outer London boroughs. The borough’s biggest success in the past year has been its roll out of School Streets where coverage has increased from 17% in 2022 to 28% in 2023. Croydon also implemented a wand-separated cycle track on Brighton Road, South Croydon, in March 2023. While there has been a decline in the number of cars per household, this positive move has been countered by a fall in the proportion of households that do not have a car. With only 1/5 of streets covered by a CPZ, Croydon needs a strategy for achieving borough wide CPZ coverage, to better reflect the negative impacts of free and unrestricted parking.
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.
