2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Hammersmith and Fulham continue to roll out their Clean Air Neighbourhoods programme. These are similar to LTNs but have exemptions for residents. We wait to see the impact on modal shift and active travel, and until that evidence is available these Clean Air Neighbourhoods will receive ⅓ of the score which full LTNs receive.
Hammersmith and Fulham made little progress on new protected cycle track over the year and doesn’t have a School Streets programme (it has promised to deliver new School Streets within its Clean Air Neighbourhoods), so continues to be a lower scorer among inner London boroughs.
If the roll out of Clean Air Neighbourhoods has the impact that the council hopes then we may see an improvement in active travel and other metrics in future, so this borough is one to watch.
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.
