2022 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Enfield remains in 24th place of the 33 boroughs. It scores well on the provision of separated cycle track (11% of roads) and has a relatively low cycling casualty rate. For an outer London borough, its Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) coverage of 25% of appropriate streets is also good. However, it scores badly on sustainable mode share and rates of walking and cycling, has high car ownership levels, and has not rolled out 20 mph or Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) borough-wide. (We were unable to update CPZ data this year however Enfield told us they have introduced one new CPZ since 2020. This will be reflected in next year’s scores.)
Areas where Enfield is behind and should focus future efforts are School Streets (only 13% of schools have a School Streets compared to leaders Islington with 49%), the School STARS programme, 20 mph limits and controlled parking zones. Enfield has made a start but there’s a long way to go.
The Healthy Streets Scorecard combine scores for nine indicators to create an overall Healthy Streets score for each borough. See the graph below for 2022 results (includes 2019 – 2021 results for comparison). For more detail visit the London-wide overview of the 2022 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.
