Haringey’s Streetspace Plans

Haringey has been working in partnership with residents, stakeholders, the Mayor of London, Transport for London (TfL) and the Department for Transport (DfT) on a transport and highways response to the COVID-19 crisis to enable social distancing in our town centres and outside our schools, providing new cycleways and introducing low traffic neighbourhoods. This will help active and safe travel whilst the public transport system cannot operate at full capacity due to social distancing.

The council has been working on proposals to give people safe alternatives to travel around the borough through ‘active travel’ such as walking and cycling. Haringey has submitted 18 bids to TfL to access a share of the £45m London Streetspace Plan fund (external link). The bids are listed below.

We launched an interactive Commonplace Map (external link) which allows residents and business owners to identify cycle routes and low traffic neighbourhoods. The consultation opened on 2 June and closes on 26 June 2020.

Thank you to those who have already sent us suggestions for active travel measures. We are very grateful for the detailed and thoughtful suggestions. These have helped inform our approach. We will not be able to deliver everything and what we deliver will be dependent on funding.

Our focus is on the urgent need to help tackle COVID-19 so our priority is temporary measures to support social distancing, but some of the temporary measures could be made permanent. We will also use suggestions put forward here to inform future bids to funding opportunities and our longer-term ambitions in our emerging Walking and Cycling Action Plan which will be fully consulted on later in 2020.
