2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Ealing has been a low scoring borough on the Scorecard since removing most of the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods it implemented in 2020. It hasn’t taken alternative measures to significantly boost healthy streets in the borough, with little progress on protected cycle tracks (at 4.3%), 20mph (88% – the same as in 2021), or school provision (School Streets: 18%, school STARS: 27%).
Ealing has made commitments to increase walking and cycling, and create healthy streets in the borough, but action doesn’t seem to be yet matching up to these words. We would love to see an increase in ambition and delivery in the coming year – without it, its fine words will look increasingly hollow.
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.
