2024 Healthy Streets Scorecard results

Congratulations go to Islington Council, overall winners of the 2024 Healthy Streets Scorecard, for topping the table for the first time and being one of few boroughs to continue to deliver progress year-on-year. The borough’s score of 7.53 places it slightly higher than the City of London. Their rollout of School Streets continues, and the borough has the highest percentage of all schools with a traffic-free School Street. Islington’s pace of rollout of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) has slowed but overall coverage continues to increase. Currently 47% of suitable Islington streets are covered by an LTN, up from 8% four years ago. We urge Islington to step-up delivery of protected cycle lanes (as only 4% of roads are covered) and this will help to get more people cycling. But overall, Islington is set to be the borough to beat in coming years.

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.
