Liveable Crouch End Strategic Design Questionnaire - January 2020
The survey is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part and gave feedback. We have now collated and analysed the results and the information can be found on our Reports and Minutes page.
During the October 2019 trial we were able to engage with over 4,000 residents, businesses and stakeholders within the Crouch End area. The opportunity to involve the community further as we develop designs for this scheme is important to us. We want everyone who lives and works in Crouch End to have their say.
The Liveable Neighbourhood funding that has been secured for Crouch End from TfL is an exciting opportunity to make changes to the area. However, we need a steer from the community as to where your priorities lie, which potential ideas we should develop further, what appetite there is for certain proposals and which options are not supported by the community. The Strategic Design Survey looked at the Crouch End area with a clean sheet, and all potential options were explored. The input from the community on these options is now being used to direct our design development.
The aim of the Liveable Neighbourhood scheme is to improve neighbourhoods for walking, cycling and public transport, reduce car trips to make the streets healthier.
In the Crouch End area motor vehicle traffic has been prioritised in the past, but it contributes to poorer air quality, bus delays, unsafe walking and cycling conditions for children and increased noise pollution.
We know the network capacity (the amount of space on the road) impacts the number of car trips. For example, more car trips take place when the capacity is increased, while fewer car trips take place when capacity is reduced. Therefore, we need to look at ways of reducing the road network capacity for motor vehicles to reduce the number of car trips. In addition to this, there are a number of other changes that can contribute to making streets healthier.
