2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
The score for Lambeth is largely unchanged from 2022 and the borough sits in eighth place with an overall score of 5.8. The publication of the Lambeth Kerbside Strategy in January 2023 showed the ambition of the borough giving clear guidelines as to how it proposes to reclaim the kerbside as a public rather than a private space. The borough aims to rebalance space away from solely motor vehicle usage and towards more sustainable uses such as street trees and parklets, cycle hangers and shared mobility.
The new bus priority indicator shows that Lambeth is one of just three inner London boroughs where between 40% and 50% of bus routes are prioritised principally through bus lanes. This autumn the borough will become fully 20mph as lower speed limits are introduced on the remaining TfL Red Route roads across Lambeth.
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.
