2022 Healthy Streets Scorecard results

This year saw very few changes as Haringey is taking too long in implementing its plans and needs to start delivering. We remain hopeful that recently re-elected Deputy Leader Mike Hakata will begin to deliver at pace. 

There is some good news with the proportion of schools with a traffic-free School Street up to 27% from 12% and a high score for School STARS points showing action on promoting sustainable travel to school. This is a borough where the majority – 55% – of households don’t have a car and ambitious, transformative measures are needed. Only 17% of streets are in a Low Traffic Neighbourhood (and these are historic LTNs) compared to neighbours Hackney at 70% and Waltham Forest at 49%, there is room for more parking controls and there is hardly any cycle track in the borough – and what exists is generally not joined up and is of poor quality.

For now, Haringey only retains its standings because it had already implemented widespread 20mph speed limits and controlled parking across the borough (though controlled parking only covers 67% of streets, a much lower rate than other Inner London boroughs.)

"The pace of change in Haringey remains too slow, so we are hopeful that 2022-2023 will be a time for rapid and positive initiatives - more School Streets and safe routes to school for children, alongside action on much-needed LTN schemes and the introduction of safe, protected cycle tracks. We are ready to support Mike Hakata in implementing measures to make active travel one of Haringey's priorities this electoral term."

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.

The Healthy Streets Scorecard ranks London Boroughs on how healthy their streets are according to nine indicators – four ‘outcome’ and five ‘input’ indicators. By combining the indicator scores, each borough is given a final Healthy Streets score.

  • The first chart below shows the scores for each of the nine Healthy Streets Scorecard indicators (note that Outer and Inner London boroughs are shaded different colours to aid comparison)
  • The second chart below shows the final Healthy Streets scores (again the Inner and Outer London boroughs are shaded different colours to aid comparison)

In both graphs, the scores for Haringey are highlighted.

You can review detailed results for the outcome indicators, the input indicators or a London-wide overview of the 2020 Scorecard results. You can also read our explainer about why we have chosen these nine indicators.

Indicator index (normalised score) chart explained

In the chart above, each of the nine indicator scores have been normalised to adjust the values measured on different scales to a common scale. The borough with the lowest score in the data range is given the value 0, and the borough with the highest score in the data range is given the value 1. Note that a borough that has a normalised value of 1 has not achieved 100% of the indicator target, rather a value of 1 means that the borough has the highest score when compared to all 32 boroughs. (View the actual input and outcome indicator data). We can then compare boroughs and where they sit on a scale of zero to one.
