Improving the area for walking, cycling and public transport

We've been awarded funding from the Mayor of London's Liveable Neighbourhoods initiative to improve air quality and reduce congestion around Greenwich town centre.

We have developed ideas for how the town centre can be improved and now we want to hear from you.

Learning from previous efforts to improve the town centre, a general layout has been proposed though there is limited detail so far - because we need your views first on what would work well and what wouldn’t.

This opportunity to comment is focused on ideas for the town centre. The surrounding residential streets also have issues and we want to address these where possible. We're working with residents and businesses to develop residential traffic management projects and proposals will be brought forward over the course of 2019 following this engagement on the town centre. Local people will have the opportunity to comment on those once the plans are ready.

You can take part online before 17 February, or at one of four events being hosted at Mews School Room, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London SE10 9NN:

  • 4-6.30pm, Thursday 24 January     
  • 4-6.30pm, Tuesday 29 January

Reducing traffic in west Greenwich

As part of the Greenwich Liveable Neighbourhood we want to develop proposals to address safety and health concerns caused by traffic on residential streets in the area of west Greenwich referred to locally as the 'hills and vales' area. Previous attempts to solve the issue focussed on individual roads which had the unintended effect of pushing traffic onto neighbouring streets.

We're now looking for an area-wide approach across this area and we need the detailed knowledge of local residents and businesses to help shape our plans.

Have your say

It's important that all residents within the affected areas have an opportunity to give their views before we decide on a final plan, so please take part in the online consultation before 17 February. 

We've developed initial ideas for this project and we need you to get involved and have your say, so we get as much information as possible to help guide us.

Past events

We hosted an engagement event in the area on Friday 19 September and a focus group session with residents and businesses from streets across the area.

On Monday 19 November we hosted another event where the group discussed ways in which a combination of timed and fixed bollards could be used to address current traffic issues, prevent displacement to neighbouring streets but also maintain access at times when traffic does not create safety and health issues.
