Our Healthy Walworth

Our healthy Walworth


As a direct result of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and based on last year’s engagement on Our Healthy Walworth, the council will be trialling experimental measures with a view to enabling social distancing, supporting active travel and preventing an increase of traffic and pollution as we come out of lockdown. These will be installed in late June/early July. Please see the letter from Cllr Richard Livingstone (PDF, 409kb) regarding the experimental measures in the Walworth Road area.

We have set up a Commonplace map to enable you to feed back on the effects of these measures. This will be open to comments once the measures are installed.

Low Emission Neighbourhood

How can we make the Walworth area healthier and more pleasant for local people?

Less pollution, places you can enjoy, less through traffic, better bus journeys, safer walking and cycling, more attractive shopping and leisure: these could be some of the benefits of the Low Emission Neighbourhood.

Phase 1: 7 October to 31 December 2019

We’re asking you what the local issues are and what improvements you would like to see on your local streets. Click on the online map, answer a few short questions and tell us about traffic and other problems down your street.
