May’s London Local Elections are just around the corner. With four years in office and control over 95% of London’s streets, prospective London Borough Council Leaders and Mayors have the opportunity to make London’s streets safer, fairer and healthier for all - to create streets for people.
Information for Prospective London Borough Councillors
We want to see better journeys and healthier lives for everyone by changing the way our streets work. To do this we need as many prospective Council Leaders as possible to take the Sustrans Streets for People Pledge.
The Sustrans Streets for People Pledge asks Council Leadership candidates to commit to:
- Create three neighbourhoods free of through traffic.
- Create at least two schemes that that connect places people need to go with protected space for cycling on busy roads.
- Ensure redesigned streets are easy to walk through, safe to cross and truly accessible to all.
- Create places people want to be, by increasing pavement space and introducing seating, shade and shelter - bringing streets back to life.
By taking the pledge, prospective Council Leaders are promising their citizens streets that unlock better, healthier journeys, cleaner air and quieter, calmer places for people.
From Enfield to Ealing, we are seeing the positive impact streets designed for people can have. They allow communities to thrive, bring people back to high streets, increase healthy travel options, and help to clean our toxic air.
Be a part of something bigger this election.
Make sure your borough is one of those signing up to the Streets for People Pledge.
Together boroughs can use the next four years to create streets for people.
