Health Case Study: Healthy Streets for London
Healthy Streets for London was launched in February 2017 to support the Mayor’s Transport Strategy. It works at three levels:
- Street – walking and cycling space; better public spaces
- Transport network – public transport; walking and cycling routes
- Strategic – development patterns enabling walking or cycling to shops, school, or work
Healthy Streets aims to help the city reduce CO2 emissions by 60% of 1990 levels by 2025 and increase the number of Londoners walking or cycling for at least 20 minutes every day.

Leadership & Replication
The Mayor, Deputy Mayor for Transport, and Walking and Cycling Commissioner shaped the Healthy Streets approach with help from a public health consultant.
As this program is in its early stages, there has yet to be any replication. However, project leaders are articulating their design principles and approach in ways that could inform and inspire other cities.
