2022 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
Wandsworth is third-from-last place in comparison to the 14 inner London boroughs, coming in 13th overall position out of all 33 London boroughs in the Scorecard.
As with many boroughs, in the year before the local elections, there was little change in Wandsworth. On the plus side there was a decline (of 1.1%) in the number of cars registered in the borough and the introduction of 20mph limits on borough roads (although TfL-provided data for 20mph has yet to be updated for Wandsworth). Local campaigners advise that in December 2021, Wandsworth opened its first protected cycle lane on Thessaly Road. We would like to see more protected cycle track on main roads too.
Almost all of the other metrics were unchanged. The key to improvement in the next year will be whether the arrival of a new administration leads to greater moves to support walking, cycling and wheeling. The overall picture, as we reported in last year’s Scorecard, is that much more action is needed on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, cycle track, School Streets and controlled parking.
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.
