Welcome from Cllr Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader of the Council, London Borough of Waltham Forest

How can a Healthy Streets approach work for all London boroughs?

The draft Mayor's Transport Strategy sets out policies and proposals to reshape transport in London over the next 25 years. It advocates a Healthy Streets Approach, creating streets and street networks that encourage walking, cycling and public transport use, so reducing car dependency and the health problems it creates. How will this work?

Chair's introduction: Scott Lester, Regional Director, Project Centre

  • Will Norman, Walking & Cycling Commissioner, London

  • Patricia Brown, Change Expert & CEO, Central Consulting & the Commission on the Future of London’s Roads and Streets

  • Steve Gooding, Director, RAC Foundation

  • Lucy Saunders, Public Health Specialist, Transport & Public Realm, Transport for London

  • Alan Andrews, Environmental Lawyer, Client Earth

Panel-led discussion and Q+A
