New London Architecture

Streets for people - accelerating pedestrian strategies in London


Friday 30 April 2021
08:30 - 09:30

As London reaches a point to slowly begin lifting lockdown restrictions and implementing broader travel opportunities, what does this now mean for London’s streets?
London’s streets during the last year have seen changes made in a bid to respond quickly to the growing concerns the pandemic brought. But what are the strategies across London that support a people-centric approach in our streets? How will the past year experience influence strategic planning and new initiatives that support pedestrians across the capital? 
As we approach a pivotal point in easing out of a national lockdown, how can we make sure the pedestrian focus remains a priority and what does it mean for creating and sustaining healthier, active streets for the future? In what ways do London’s streets need to adapt to facilitate pedestrians and people-centric design?
This webinar looks at how our streets can maintain and support a pedestrian focused city. From reflections of the past year to new proposals being develop, we present case studies and approaches for London’s streets.
