Harrow

2024 Healthy Streets Scorecard results

Though Harrow stays at 26th place in the Scorecard with a score of 2.67, there has been some progress. There are two new Controlled Parking Zones at Kenton Road and Eastleigh Avenue and an increase in 20mph coverage from 25% in 2023 to 37% in 2024. These are steps in the right direction. 

There clearly remains a huge upward climb for the borough but it could start with easy wins like more controlled parking and extending 20mph limits. It could focus on bus priority; and could support car clubs, to tackle high car-ownership levels. Overall, Harrow urgently needs to do more to support active travel.

The Healthy Streets Scorecard combine scores for ten indicators to create an overall Healthy Streets score for each borough. See the graph below for 2024 results (includes 2019 – 2023 results for comparison). For more detail visit the London-wide overview of the 2024 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.
