Two new tools for implementing the Healthy Streets Approach

23 November 2017

Transport for London (TfL) published this week two tools developed by Lucy Saunders (a Consultant in Public Health specialising in transport, public realm and planning working at TfL) for implementing the Healthy Streets Approach. These are now available to urban and transport planning practitioners.

The Guide to the Healthy Streets Indicators is a qualitative tool. Each of the 10 Healthy Streets Indicators is described in a list of prompt questions and illustrative images. Anyone can look through this to get a good sense of what Healthy Streets is all about. You can use this tool to assess an existing street, develop ideas for a new project or critique a plan.

The Healthy Streets Check for Designers is a quantitative tool for assessing the existing lay-out of a street or a detailed plan for a new layout. There are thirty one metrics to be assessed and an overall score is produced. You can use this tool to compare options for a new street design and identify what you could do to make that design as healthy as possible.
