Join the debate on how to create better streets

Loveable Neighbourhoods conference takes place on 20 May

07 April 2022


Loveable Neighbourhoods is the new name for the Liveable Neighbourhoods conference, which was launched in partnership with Transport for London and hosted by Haringey Council in 2019. 

This second event – hosted by Croydon Council on 20 May – will showcase how streets and places have been transformed to encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport. There will be analysis of the impact of projects on air quality and road safety, as well as on the connection between better streets and improved community cohesion, health and wellbeing.

The event will assess the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on local neighbourhoods and consider the lessons learned from Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes. Expert panels will consider the case for people-friendly streets in a post-Covid world, with more people working from home and using local amenities. 

School Streets, 20-minute neighbourhoods, the roll-out of 20mph limits, pocket parks, parklets and camera monitoring will also be discussed.

The programme will include timely advice on how to get projects funded, building a consensus through good data and ensuring robust engagement with local people.

The event – at the iconic Fairfield Halls – will offer the best examples of the political leadership, policy-making, project delivery and programme implementation helping to improve our streets.
