2022 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
With the exception of the addition of a number of School Streets, there has been little change in Lewisham Healthy Streets Scorecard score in 2022. The borough is to be congratulated as it has added a swathe of School Streets, introduced under an Experimental Traffic Order, over the last year. Lewisham now has just under 40% of the borough’s schools with School Streets.
The number of cars registered in Lewisham has fallen by 2.1%. Levels of protected cycle track remain low at under 1% of all roads.
The manifesto pledges of the new administration remain strong “we will continue to work hard to reduce traffic on our roads. Some 50% of households in Lewisham don’t have a car, so Lewisham will continue working with Transport for London to encourage greater use of public transport, more cycling and less use of cars for less important journey”. The proof will be in the delivery of real change in the borough, however.
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.
