2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Lewisham has the second lowest score of any of the inner London boroughs and in 2023 sits in 14th place with a score of 4.7. On the plus side, the Lewisham section of Cycleway 4 has now been completed and School Streets are being rolled out. Around 30% of the bus routes in the boroughs are prioritised through bus lanes. More generally, change in favour of active travel is now largely stalled and Lewisham has the lowest level of any of the inner London boroughs in terms of controlled parking, with just 21% CPZ coverage final score, whereas six inner London boroughs have scores over 90%. The borough will benefit from TfL’s planned expansion of 20mph speed limits on its Red Route roads across south London in autumn 2023.
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.
