Cycle Friendly Town Centres

Many of London's high streets and town centres have become run down, congested traffic arteries. As the internet transforms our shopping habits, town centres have suffered but they can be revitalised. They need to be places where people want to spend time, meet friends, enjoy social activity and access a variety of services.

To build liveable town centres, we need to prioritise people over motor traffic, creating space that can be enjoyed by the local community and that encourages walking and cycling. This can create lively, pleasant places that are economically viable and socially vibrant.

We asked local Councillors to help make our high streets and town centres, more cycle-friendly.
