Liveable Streets

The Council is reviewing some of the Liveable Streets schemes that have been implemented, with the aim of seeking to reopen our roads, ending the traffic management schemes that are not working effectively in our borough.

The aim of this review is to remove the elements of the existing Liveable Street schemes that restrict traffic movement, have added to congestion on our main roads, that have limited emergency service access or compromised how vulnerable residents access their streets, whilst retaining public realm improvements such as widened footpaths that make it easier for residents to get around.

As part of the review process, we want to hear residents’ views on all proposed plans. Where appropriate we will have a consultation on each individual scheme to ensure that residents can have their voices heard before decisions are made and projects are implemented.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the 4 Reopening Our Roads consultations so far. The deadlines for all the consultations (Wapping, Brick Lane, Old Bethnal Green Area and Weavers) are 7 Aug 2022.

Residents can find more information and fill in the surveys online in the links below.
