2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
This year Richmond was acknowledged as the top ‘Outer London borough performing better than expected based on housing density’. A big highlight from Richmond is that it now has 100% 20mph coverage (up from 95% last year). But progress in other areas has been slow. There have been no new cycle tracks (though some are in progress -Strawberry Vale, or planned – Kew Road, Hospital Bridge Road) or LTNs (remaining at 13%), and only a slight increase in School Streets (at 21%), but current ones have poor enforcement. Richmond was also one of three boroughs that did not provide us with the data we requested for CPZ mapping, so we’ve had to extrapolate their score from 2021 data. The borough’s CPZ coverage final score is 38%, a little below best outer London borough Ealing on 47%.
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.
