Browning Street - Streets for people

About the project

As part of the ongoing Walworth Streetspace scheme, our commitment to enhancing the local environment and ensuring the safety and well-being of our community is unwavering.

Over the past year, we’ve been collaborating closely with local residents, businesses, and stakeholders to reimagine Browning Street as a vibrant, people-friendly space. The input we’ve received from you has been invaluable in shaping our vision for Browning Street.

Key Objectives

During our engagement exercises in June and September-October 2022, we set out key objectives for Browning Street transformation:

  • Easier to cross and walk
  • Safer for cycling
  • Great for local businesses
  • Welcoming and safer for everyone
  • Healthier, with cleaner air

Final design 

After working closely with the community, we are thrilled to announce that we have now finalised the proposed designs. They encapsulate the aspirations and needs of our community, reflecting our shared vision for a better Browning Street.
