As we begin to emerge from lockdown, more people will be cycling and walking around our streets and public spaces. Now, and in the future, we want residents to feel safe and supported in the streets and spaces we all use daily. .

Some of our pavements are narrow which makes it hard for people to socially distance without also using the carriageway. And some of our public spaces and streets are very busy with both people and ‘street furniture’, making it difficult to socially distance and/or enjoy the space.

We would like your help to identify where it is difficult to socially distance across the borough to help us prioritise where changes could free up more space. You can also let us know where you think the measures we have taken are working and you’d like to see them remain in place or let us have any other feedback you may have.

We have already taken action in some locations, but please use the map below to let us know if there are other areas where pavement widening or other changes to our public spaces would help you to maintain social distancing or where there are obstacles impacting on how spaces can be used.

We will not be able to take action on all requests, but your help will be invaluable in helping us identify common ‘flashpoints’ in the borough and prioritise our limited resources.

If you have any issues accessing the map below, please call our contact centre on 020 8547 5000.
