1. Best Healthy Streets Innovation Award 

The Best Innovation in Healthy Streets Award can include technology innovations such as air quality improvement solutions e.g. green walls and infra, active travel infrastructure, such as bike parking and cycle schemes.  The Innovation award can also include original ideas in engineering and street design, which are not always considered ‘technology’ based innovations.  

  • London Borough of Tower Hamlets and Project Centre: Electric Vehicles 
    Improving air quality by reducing emissions from road traffic is a crucial priority, and we prepared an ‘Electric Vehicle Charging Delivery Plan’ on behalf of the Council, now a public document. The primary objective is to achieve full coverage of the borough by 2025; this is defined as any resident or business being a maximum of 400m away from a charging point within the borough. In effect, we delivered a comprehensive, accessible and appropriate charging network for residents, business and visitors.

  • Cyc Lok: SMART Bike Lockers 
    In order to influence travel behaviour and model share by boosting cycling levels, cyclists need facilities for themselves and their bikes. Access Controlled Secure Bike parking SMART Lockers provide 24/7 monitored and alarmed service with booking and payment available via an app for multiuser, individual, on-demand and short term parking for bikes and belongings. Security for users encourages multimodal transport at park and ride facilities and train, tram and bus stations.

  • Cycle Training UK: Ride Side-By-Side 
    Ride Side by Side is a bookable cycle service for people over 60 or people with mobility issues, using stable, comfortable electric side-by-side cycles which are easily accessible and able to carry loads such as shopping, sticks and walking frames, for trips within two miles of users’ homes. The service has been running in the London borough of Hackney since May 2017 and is about to launch in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Users can choose whether or not to pedal along with the 'pilot' who accompanies, who will help them with shopping or with access to health appointments if required.

  • Pindar Creative: SALI (Semi-Automated Leaflet Interface) 
    Pindar Creative offers user-friendly web-based solutions that enable schools, businesses and local communities to produce their own leaflets featuring a site-specific map. Pindar’s SALI (Semi-Automated Leaflet Interface) is an innovative online portal enabling establishments to generate sustainable travel leaflets (web and print) for their location, using OpenStreetMap mapping and pre-defined templates (businesses/schools/groups)to create tailored, site-specific leaflets

  • ArupReCharge Parklet  
    With an estimated one million EVs predicted to be on the road by 2020, UK cities will need a six-fold increase in the number of EV charging points. At present, charging points are being placed within footways which, in many cases, impede pedestrians. Arup's innovative concept scheme is a Recharge Parklet: a mini parklet on the street, replacing individual parking bays, and where EV charging points can be housed along with community uses such as planters, benches and games.

  • Atkins: Virtual Street Design
    Within the 10 Healthy Streets indicators which set out the parameters of a healthy street, many relate to experience. However, in reality street design is a complex balancing act where the needs of different, often conflicting, users must be accommodated within a finite space to achieve an optimal balance. The Atkins public realm team has initiated an innovative design approach, ‘Virtual Street Design’, to address the technical challenges of implementing the Healthy Streets Indicators and Healthy Streets Check for Designers. 

  • Transport for London, Ringway Jacobs and Charcon: Cycle Kerb Segregation System
    The Mayor’s Flagship Cycle Superhighway 2 (CS2) between Aldgate and Bow roundabout was a major investment by Transport for London (TfL) to make the route safer for cyclists and other road users. With more than 60 collisions involving injuries to cyclists recorded on the corridor annually, a unique 500mm-wide Cycle Kerb Segregation System was designed using physical islands in each direction separating cyclists and vehicles within the highly constrained strategic corridor. The new design saves lives, money, resources and space.

  • London Borough of Waltham Forest: Selborne Road 
    Air pollution levels across Waltham Forest were exceeding legal EU limits, with one of the worst areas being Selborne Road; a main east-west link used by London buses, commuters and visitors to retail offers. Selborne Road has been transformed, improving the quality of the environment and the air, by encouraging sustainable modes of transport via a cycle hub, E-bus charging, the first ‘green wall’ in Waltham Forest, a ‘green’ public realm and new community spaces.

  • See.Sense: Next Generation Cycling, Manchester 
    See.Sense and BT have partnered on an innovative project to use crowdsourced data from cyclists to help get more people on their bikes. Data from the trial will be shared with CityVerve, the UK’s smart cities demonstrator, based in Manchester. The data will help the city identify and prioritise investments in cycling infrastructure and policies, enabling cycling to become an efficient and sustainable transport alternative to the car.

2. Best Healthy Streets Behaviour Change Initiatives Award 

This award recognises marketing campaigns that engage with their target audiences, have a measurable impact, are replicable elsewhere and are great value for money.  They can be single medium or multi-channel.  The key question will be: does it work well?

  • Better PointsEbbsfleet Garden City 
    The 12-month Get Active Ebbsfleet programme of rewards, messaging and gamification techniques encouraged 500 residents in areas of Ebbsfleet to walk, run or cycle an additional 15,800 miles since its inception in March 2018, with the aim of encouraging inactive people to move more and to reach the government recommended 150 minutes per week of physical activity.

  • City of LondonRoad Danger Reduction Campaign 
    The high volume of pedestrians at peak times in the City of London means that pedestrians may step into the road unexpectedly and motorists need to be constantly vigilant. Pedestrian KSI numbers are increasing, involving around 50% of KSI collisions. Although pedestrians have a responsibility for their own safety, they are the most vulnerable road users. The ‘Be Brake Ready’ campaign doesn’t blame victims, but targets sources of danger and heightens pedestrians’ awareness of danger to themselves and to other vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and motorcyclists.

  • Green GumptionVehicle Idling Action Campaign 
    In 2016 the Mayor of London’s Air Quality Fund enabled the launch of the Vehicle Idling Action behavioural change campaign, bringing together 16 boroughs to create the a London-wide education and awareness raising campaign on the  effects on air pollution and health. It will continue into a 3rd year with 18 boroughs taking part. It is aimed at motorists and drivers, pedestrians and concerned citizens. To raise awareness, an innovative, vehicle idling-themed snakes & ladders board game was developed to engage families in learning about air pollution issues. This was also produced in a pocket-size version for drivers and passers-by.

  • Meristem: Car Free Street Parties 
    Meristem has been involved with numerous ‘car free street parties’ on London streets to promote community rather than car use. By removing cars, the streets are handed back to the local residents, so enabling play, walking and cycling. Meristem provides lush greenery, seating and planters as an alternative to traditional road barriers, helping to promote urban greening. Street parties allow stakeholders to visualise the benefits of closing the road to passing traffic, and assist the councils to make permanent changes on rat run roads and roads outside schools.

  • Transport for LondonThe constructors cycle experience
    The target group here is directors and CEOs in the construction industry. The campaign focuses on helping contractors meet deadlines whilst minimising disruption to those that live locally and use the road network. It includes improving marshalling standards, loading and holding methods, traffic management design, hoarding and gantry design, site design and HGV management, delivered by a presentation. There is also a ‘cycle experience’ opportunity for company representatives, using their own bikes or Santander hire bikes free of charge.

  • London Borough of Waltham Forest: Complementary Measures 
    The Enjoy Waltham Forest Complementary Measures team is delivering an inclusive multifaceted behaviour change programme to facilitate a cycling and walking cultural change in Waltham Forest, a borough four years into a five-year sustainable transport and active travel infrastructure upgrade. With a multifaceted programme that includes free cycle training, active travel infrastructure and school engagement, everybody who lives, works or studies in the borough has the ability to take part in sustainable transport and active travel.

  • Michael Jones, Drings Butchers
    Michael Jones is a butcher and owner of Drings Butchers in Greenwich. Over the past year, Michael has worked with Greenwich Council and Sustrans to trial an innovative cargo bike scheme, swapping his diesel van for an electric cargo bike for over 95% of his business deliveries. The trial involved having the van GPS-tracked for three weeks, then using an e-cargo bike for these deliveries for the next three weeks while also being tracked. Using a number of metrics, Sustrans and academics at Imperial College London are accurately calculating how much No2 and particulate matter has been saved.

  • Vala Valavan, London Borough of Waltham Forest
    Kathiravelu Valavan (Vala) is an inspirational leader delivering change to the public realm of Waltham Forest. He was the main 'driver' helping to create infrastructure for supporting active travel, sustainable transport and creating health-friendly communities in the borough. His ambition, clear vision and purpose was central to the Council's successful bid and delivery of the £20 million Olympic funds for improving public services and infrastructure, and became the catalyst for the multi-award winning £27 million Mini-Holland funding to deliver the Enjoy Waltham Forest programme.

4. The Healthy Streets Community Project of the Year 

New for 2018, the Healthy Streets Community Project of the Year award will seek applicants from community-led projects where a small change has made a big difference. 

Sponsored by: Commonplace

  • Hammersmith & Fulham Council: Overstone & Galloway Road 
    In April 2018, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham completed a scheme to plant an additional seven street trees in Overstone Road and 14 street trees in Galloway Road, removing several parking spaces. A variety of species of semi-mature trees were installed in the carriageway. The tree pits were constructed utilising the innovative GreenBlue Urban StrataCell products to create a sustainable environment. 

  • Friends of City GardensMoor Lane Bridge Community Allotment 
    The Moor Lane Bridge Community Allotment project has transformed a temporarily redundant bridge into a productive fruit and vegetable garden. The bridge links the Barbican Estate with Moor Lane station and is currently blocked during construction works on the 21 Moorfields site. Developer MACE approached Friends of City Gardens (FoCG) to create a new green space for local residents as part of greening for the Low Emission Neighbourhood plans. FoCG developed a relationship with MACE and this resulted in the creation, in 2018, of the Moor Lane Bridge Community Allotment and Clean Air Garden.

  • London Borough of Southwark: Tranquil Triangle 
    Dante Road and Brook Drive are narrow residential streets in Southwark that have long suffered from high levels of traffic. The resident-supported ‘Tranquil Triangle’ initiative to close Dante Road to cars is now being trialled, and represents a success for both local people and cycling in London, making a number of the local roads near CS7 significantly quieter. Since the closure, there is significantly less through traffic, more cyclists of different ages and abilities, and children playing in the streets.

  • London Borough of Waltham ForestWaltham Forest Cycling Campaign 
    Waltham Forest Cycling Campaign (WFCC) is a community cycling club in Waltham Forest and has been entirely run by volunteers for 13 years. Council liaison officers at the Waltham Forest Cycling Campaign communicate the concerns and feedback of local WFCC cyclists to the council in a monthly meeting. These meetings are a critical tool for the success of the Enjoy Waltham Forest programme, as it provides sustainable transport planners with cyclists’ opinions of cycling infrastructure in the borough. WFCC also supports the running of rides, campaigns and events and is a catalyst for encouraging active travel behaviour change in Waltham Forest.

  • Meristem: Green Screens to Reduce Air Pollution in Playgrounds 
    In London alone there are over 800 schools that are located in areas that exceed the EU legal limit for nitrogen dioxide of 40μg/m3, meaning thousands of children are being exposed to poor air quality, both inside and outside the classroom. Last year the Mayor of London audited 50 of the most polluted schools in London. Meristem Design are working with the list of schools audited, and more, to ‘green up’ their schools with green screens, trees, additional planting and internal and external living walls. The screens have been shown to remove particulates from roadside air and also contribute to improved visual amenity as well as improvements in air quality.

  • What If Projects: Lamlas Garden 
    A community-led project team delivered the Lamlas Garden project, a reclaimed street at the heart of a neighbourhood local to Elephant & Castle, London, in phases. Residents, in liaison with Southwark Council, successfully re-designated the street, meaning it could be free of traffic and provide access only to pedestrians, cyclists and for vehicular deliveries to the neighbouring Lamlash Street Allotment sites. From this base, the project team developed ideas for a garden, an edible garden, new street trees, planting beds, a new street surface, and planters for community growing.

5. The Healthy Streets Proposal of the Year Award

This award will recognise the Healthy Streets Proposal of the Year, considering all of the Healthy Streets indicators including: street design, access, active travel choices, safety, improved air quality and livability.  Abstracts should demonstrate the biggest impacts of both soft and hard measures. 

Sponsored by: Urban Movement

Urban Movement
  • London Borough of Tower Hamlets and Project CentreSalmon Street
    In order to make the road safer for children attending Sir William Burrough School, this scheme will introduce a zebra crossing to make crossing the road safer, re-design Salmon Street as a public space with a raised surface, extend the raised table at the Salmon Street / Salmon Lane junction to encourage vehicles to slow down, and provide a part-time loading bay space for business and school use. The public space was designed in collaboration with the local school. 

  • SteerBeam Parkway
    The Beam Parkway scheme will transform a 2km length of New Road in Havering, and will be a key enabler of the Rainham and Beam Park Housing Zone that aims to deliver 3,500 new homes, community facilities, a new school and a new train station. Scheme objectives, developed collaboratively with stakeholders, are to enable and encourage the use of sustainable transport, reduce severance, enhance urban realm and provide new green space, unlock major regeneration and exploit opportunities to work with developers.

  • Salford Council: Chapel East Phase 1 
    Salford is an ambitious city of 245,000 residents, poised to deliver 40,000 new homes and 40,000 new jobs by 2040. Chapel Street East is an important corridor in Salford, and proposals for its sustainable regeneration featured prominently in the Beelines launch in June. The project will deliver a high quality public realm including paving, seating, cycle parking and public art, cycle tracks, continuous footways, bus stop bypasses, street trees, a 20mph zone, removal of all car parking and loading bays to serve local businesses.

  • Sustrans: The Ripple Greenway 
    The ‘Ripple Greenway’ and links proposal was developed following Sustrans’ co-design activities and behaviour change programmes in the Barking Riverside area. Sustrans identified an opportunity to develop a linear park and Greenway; an essential traffic-free alternative to Thames Road, which is a polluted road dominated by heavy industrial traffic. The scheme would make walking and cycling a viable transport mode for local journeys and open up much needed green space. Local school pupils on Thames Road designed a scheme with wider pavements and traffic calming measures, which the council will be delivering over the next year.

  • London Borough of Waltham Forest: Coppermill Area Liveable Neighbourhoods Scheme 
    Waltham Forest was successful in receiving ‘Liveable Neighbourhoods’ funding from Transport for London in 2018. The Coppermill Area Liveable Neighbourhoods Scheme aims to turn Coppermill Lane into a ‘cycle street’ and so encourage sustainable and active modes in day-to-day lives to reduce congestion, tackle air pollution and improve health. Measures used in the successful neighbouring ‘villages’ Enjoy Waltham Forest (Mini-Holland) Programme will be used to join up Walthamstow Wetlands, St James Street and Blackhorse Lane and ensure all residents of the borough, new or old, are encouraged to make short journeys by bike and foot.

  • Greater London Authority & WSP: The Mayor of London’s School Air Quality Audit Programme
    An ambitious programme to address poor air quality at 50 of London’s most polluted primary schools by identifying the sources of outdoor air quality and potential exposure. WSP evaluated and recommended measures to reduce emissions and exposure, to engage school communities about the impacts of air pollution and to engage London boroughs and stakeholders to inform the feasibility of the recommendations, highlighting funding opportunities. The recommendations and measures developed included measures for the local streets surround the schools, the school grounds, the school building and behaviour change measures.

  • Hackney Council: Hackney Central Liveable Neighbourhood
    Hackney’s proposals aim to create a Liveable Neighbourhood with the help of traffic reduction (removing through traffic from Amhurst Road) linked to improved walking and cycling routes throughout the area. The core of the scheme proposes a 24-hour bus and cycle-only gate on Amhurst Road, removing general through traffic from this heavily congested road and enabling the radical redesign of dangerous junctions. Greening, a series of pocket and linear parks with improved seating, and improved pedestrian crossings will enable users to take full advantage of the regained public space.

  • City of London Corporation: London Wall Place
    The City of London Corporation is currently delivering improvements to the highway and public realm work around the new London Wall Place development, creating an improved streetscape with open spaces that complement the development and cater for the future growth of pedestrians. The design work includes widening footways, making a general traffic lane a cycle lane, new pedestrian crossings, level access to gardens, new seating, soft landscaping and shade-tolerant greenery.

6. The Healthy Street of the Year Award 

New for 2018, the Healthy Street of the Year Award will seek applicants from those that have already carried out a street redesign and the scheme has been built and delivered.  

Sponsored by: The Urban Transport Group

  • City of London: Aldgate Square 
    The City of London Corporation has transformed the Aldgate area by removing the four-lane gyratory and creating two new public spaces. Aldgate is a unique area of the City, with a school, a residential area, new developments and key transport interchanges. Aldgate Square is now one of the largest public spaces in the City of London, with space for community events. The project involved introducing two-way traffic, closing street sections to traffic, and rationalising carriageways into single lanes to create more space for cyclists and pedestrians. Subways have been removed and replaced with safer street level, controlled crossings.

  • Leicester City Council: King Street 
    The scheme to transform part of King Street in Leicester city centree was designed to complement a new public piazza and a major development comprising offices, apartments and retail space. The scheme delivered wider pavements, new cycling infrastructure and attractive outdoor seating areas. In 2015 this section of King Street was made a Pedestrian Priority Zone (PPZ) with automatic bollards. The work is part of the Connecting Leicester project which is improving routes through the city for pedestrians by removing parking and restricting vehicular access, so enabling the introduction of street cafes, benches and green shade and shelter.

  • Leicester City Council: Market Place 

  • London Borough of Southwark: Crystal Palace Parade 
    The double roundabouts at the junction of Crystal Palace Parade, Sydenham Hill and Fountain Drive, previously dominated by motor vehicles and limiting access to an adjacent park and the Crystal Palace National Sport Centre, has been transformed by creating dual ‘Dutch style’ roundabouts with a segregated footway / cycleway around the outside of the circulatory carriageway. Each exit from the junction has a shared use pedestrian / cycle zebra-style crossing facility with priority is given to pedestrians and cyclists. New footway surfacing, augmented with tree planting and landscaping, have created a gateway feature for the park and sports centre.

  • London Borough of Waltham Forest: Francis Road 
    As the focal point of the Enjoy Waltham Forest Leyton Town Centre Scheme, the tired and neglected Francis Road shopping area has been revitalised through a timed closure to vehicle traffic and and the introduction of a one-way system. Dedicated loading facilities, a public realm that prioritises the space for pedestrians and cyclists with more street furniture, better walking and cycling facilities, shared crossing points and greenery from trees, mini-pocket parks and planters. The scheme has also provided level access to all shops and businesses, many of which were not previously accessible, thus improving accessibility for residents and visitors with restricted mobility.

  • London Borough of Enfield: Green Lanes 
    Enfield Council has completed a transformational healthy street project on a massive scale, covering 4.5km along Green Lanes, as part of its ambitious ‘mini Holland’ programme. The scheme connects a number of residential and town centre areas along a key urban road, and has introduced continuous cycle lanes, created a total of 9km of segregated and semi-segregated cycle lanes (4.5km in each direction, created new public spaces, added pedestrian crossings, improved way-finding and introduced rain gardens. Plus a net gain in trees, planters and grassed areas has helped put the ‘green’ back into Green Lanes.

  • Atkins & Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames: Go Cycle Kingston – Portsmouth Road 
    As part of the Mini Holland investment in cycling infrastructure the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames commissioned Atkins to deliver a 1.6km, two-way, segregated cycle track along Portsmouth Road, with public realm access improvements. The scheme has successfully balanced the conflicting needs of traffic and cycle management against the creation of quiet, reflective spaces on the riverfront. Queen’s Promenade riverfront has been transformed through the introduction of terraced gardens, timber terraced seating and children’s play equipment and and ramped access to the existing café. New planting areas provide a sense of place and respite for walkers, cyclists and visitors alike.

  • Sustrans and Hammersmith & Fulham: Quietway 2 
    Sustrans worked with LB Hammersmith & Fulham to redesign the Quietway 2 (Q2) route. Low cost interventions included changing priority on junctions, reallocating bollards and resurfacing. Major interventions included extending pavements, creating a shared use cycle and walking path, reducing street widths, adding zebra crossings, installing raised table and improving way-finding. The new interventions create a legible route that runs outside people’s doors, encouraging them to walk and cycle.

  • London Borough of Enfield: Ponders End high Street 
    Ponders End High Street, Enfield, formerly dominated by motorised traffic, congestion and collisions, has been redesigned to provide additional space and better crossings for pedestrians, new trees, seating and attractive paving, improved access, better managed parking and loading and innovative design elements such as high quality footway paving, an attractive block-paved junction with crossing point, two circular traffic schemes (known as roundels) and five courtesy crossings to moderate traffic speeds and driver behaviour.

  • Cardiff City Council & Arup: Taff Enbankment
    The Greener Grangetown project on the Taff Embankment is an integrated partnership between Cardiff Council, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales to retrofit a sustainable drainage scheme near Cardiff city centre, and to deliver benefits beyond smart water management. The scheme's green infrastructure links the city, the river and new green spaces, as well as future-proofing the drainage network. A series of green-blue corridors and rain gardens bring improved biodiversity, an enhanced public realm and promote sustainable travel. 

  • London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and Project Centre: Hammersmith Grove 
    Hammersmith Grove responds to the ambitious agenda of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham becoming ‘the greenest borough in the country’. This scheme explores the potential of introducing ‘light touch’ streetscape elements (parklets) to substantially transform the character and use of a town centre urban space. The scale of this project is substantial for such a central location, with multiple parklets being introduced in a relatively small area maximizing the sense of ‘overnight transformation’. The project also includes new electric vehicle charging points and changes to the kerb alignment which contribute to a more sustainable, calm and safe urban environment.

  • The Wild West and Project Centre: Wild West End Gardens
    The Wild West End Garden was created as part of the Wild West End, a partnership between The Portman Estate, Baker Street Quarter Partnership and Marble Arch Partnership BID to install a pergola and 6,500 square metres of green space including 49 green roofs, beehives and boxes for birds and bats. Project Centre carried out a traffic and pedestrian survey, design of the pergola and green walls, the layout of the garden and an accessibility audit to ensure the garden was accessible to everyone.

7. Best Policing / Enforcement Initiative Award 

The judges would like to see submission examples of effective policing and enforcement schemes that relate to Healthy Streets.

  • Croydon Council: School Pilot Scheme 
    Parking issues are a genuine concern for local schools, residents, police, parents and ward councillors. With two schools in close proximity around Woodcote Primary, there is a very high volume of traffic on a daily basis. With agreement that current measures are ineffective in tackling the problems, and working alongside teams within education, Croydon Healthy Schools, public health, pollution and highways, the council updated its School Travel Plan (STP). Since the introduction of a pedestrian zone it is noticeable how much safer the school road is at drop off and pick up times, without many vehicles travelling down the road and poor parking making travel unsafe for the children. Vehicles entering the zone were monitored by unattended cameras at the entry points of the zone during restricted hours.

  • Hackney Council: Innovate Traffic Restrictions – School Streets & ULEV Streets 
    Hackney seeks to adapt existing regulation in two ways to solve two separate issues: the problem of traffic around the school gates at school drop off and pick up times, and the problem of poor air quality in a central business district at peak times when high numbers of pedestrians and cyclists are exposed to pollution. involving two separate projects (School Streets and Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Streets), both are based on the same innovation: the use of ANPR camera enforced timed pedestrian and cycle zones.

  • City of London Corporation: City Mark 
    As part of the Road Danger Reduction Programme, the City Mark vision aims to improve construction road safety in the City of London. Pilot objectives are to identify levels of compliance with leading initiatives of the Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and the Construction Logistics for Community Safety (CLOCS) standards, build a ‘bigger picture’ of potential risks exit at junctions and sites, and to support the implementation of both schemes and provide interventions to encourage improved compliance.

8. Best Healthy Streets Business Improvement District Project

This new award for 2018 will award the best Healthy Streets project delivered by a Business Improvement District 

  • Business BanksideBankside Boardwalk 
    A first for the UK, Bankside Boardwalk is an innovative and colourful new streetscape which has been trialled on Lavington Street during 2017/18. In 2016 Better Bankside secured funding through TfL’s Future Streets Fund to temporarily realign the street layout on a trial basis. By implementing an experimental one-way traffic management order for the street, the freed-up road space enabled the narrow pavements to be widened using a modular boardwalk structure, providing ease of movement for pedestrians, along with planting and places to sit along the boardwalk length.

  • Hammersmith Business Improvement District: UK’s First Business Parklets
    Parklets in Hammersmith are part of a wider initiative to deliver green spaces, cleaner air, and promote cycling. Eight parking spaces have been made into into four vibrant green parklets on Hammersmith Grove. This project is a collaboration between Hammersmith BID, Hammersmith and Fulham Council, Medidata and the Mayor of London, and is unique in that local business and BID board member, Medidata, funded the build of one parklet and Hammersmith BID is funding the parklets’ ongoing maintenance in an innovative business model.
