The Liveable Streets programme aims to improve the look and feel of public spaces in neighbourhoods across the borough and make it easier, safer, and more convenient to get around by foot, bike and public transport. They also want to reduce people making ‘rat runs’ and shortcuts through residential streets to encourage more sustainable journeys and to improve air quality and road safety.

Which areas are in the programme?

Seventeen areas across the borough have been identified for development. These areas have been chosen as they have not received recent substantial funding and improvements. The areas cover approximately 60 per cent of the borough.

Please note: They are aware of problems opening the map in Firefox. Please use alternative browsers e.g. Chrome, Edge etc if you experience such issues

How will the programme be delivered?

The Liveable Streets programme will be delivered over four years. Work in each of the 17 areas will take approximately 12 months from initiation to the start of construction.

In each area they will be asking the local community for their suggestions for improvements. Draft concept designs will be created based on this feedback and discussed with residents, designers and council staff. They will then create design proposals which will be presented to the community for comment before construction.

How do I get involved and have my say?

We have a blank piece of paper and want your creative ideas, thoughts and feedback to help shape plans for your area.
