2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results

In a borough which changed politically in 2022, little has changed in the past year. The borough scores maximum points on controlled parking and 20mph zones but has a very low score on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (7%, compared to borough-leader Hackney on 69%), and has mediocre scores on School Streets (14%, compared to borough-leader Islington on 51%), Bus Priority (21%) and protected cycle track (7.6%). This compares very poorly to neighbouring City of London, as well as a number of other central London boroughs. We hope to see strong action from Westminster in the coming year.

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.
