  • South Chiswick Liveable Neighbourhood

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    The Liveable Neighbourhoods project in south Chiswick combines a range of schemes across the Grove Park and Dukes Meadows area that focus on increasing the number of trips made by foot, bike and public transport while improving local public space.

    Hounslow Council has secured funding through Transport for London’s Liveable Neighbourhood programme to progress this project. Certain elements of the project are well defined, such as the proposed pedestrian bridge under Barnes Bridge and a new public square in Grove Park near to Chiswick Station. Alongside this there are also broader aims to provide improved walking and cycling links across the area while also looking to address well known issues of excessive traffic volumes and speeds in residential areas, which are often used as cut-through to access major roads.

  • Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhood

    Created by Alex Raha // 1 thread

    The Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhood (DPLN) project is focused on the area surrounding Folkestone Gardens, Deptford Park and Fordham Park and is funded through the Mayor of London's "Liveable Neighbourhood" programme along with borough and external match-funding. The programme is in line with the Mayor's draft Transport Strategy, which sets out a long-term ambition to transform the Capital's transport network and deliver a fairer, greener, healthier and more prosperous city for all Londoners.

    Why?

    Deptford’s population is growing fast but currently suffers from significant deprivation, communities cut-off by dangerous roads and railway lines, poor air quality, and childhood obesity. We want to tackle these issues by creating safe places to walk and cycle, reducing the amount of cars on the roads as well as creating attractive places to sit and relax.

    What has happened already?

    The council worked with park user group Deptford Folk, cycling and walking charity Sustrans, and other local groups on a community street design project for Rolt Street and Folkestone Gardens in Spring 2017. The project culminated in a community led design for the area which reimagines Rolt Street as an extension of Folkestone Gardens providing extra space to sit and relax as well as creating a safer crossing to Woodpecker Walk. You can read more about the Rolt Street community street design project along with a video and proposals by visiting our Reimagining Rolt Street page. These proposals were then incorporated into the wider Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhoods project and we will be developing these proposals further as part of the feasibility study.

    Info from survey:
    "The London Borough of Brent and Sustrans are working together to explore ways in which the Kilburn High Road and surrounding area shown could be improved. Together we want to better meet the needs of the community to make it a more desireable place to walk, cycle and enjoy being in.
    ...
    London Borough of Brent and London Borough of Camden will submit a joint application to Transport for London's Liveable Neighbourhood programme in November 2018, which will incorporate suggestions made by the community."
