Bunhill, Barbican and Golden Lane Healthy Neighbourhoods
To participate in the Healthy Neighbourhood Engagement, go to Bunhill, Barbican and Golden Lane Healthy Neighbourhood
The consultation will run from 16 January to 6 March.
The City of London Corporation and Islington Council recognise the Bunhill, Barbican and Golden Lane neighbourhoods are a unique residential, business, and cultural area. We propose to improve the streets and public realm for everyone who lives, works and visits these areas and we need the views of the community to help us get it right.
We are running a first engagement to help us develop a Healthy Neighbourhood Plan for these neighbourhoods to make them more vibrant and successful places where people can live active and healthy lives.
The Healthy Neighbourhood Plan will prioritise street space for people walking, cycling, and accessing public transport in a comfortable, safe, and pleasant environment.
Pedestrian comfort and safety will be improved by restricting traffic at certain times on some streets. Wider pavements can create more space for walking, open spaces, trees and seating.
If you have any questions about the proposal please email the Healthy Neighbourhood team
There will be more consultation in the future as plans for individual projects are developed.
Public drop-in sessions
We will be hosting in-person sessions where you can discuss the scheme with a member of the project team.

What is a Healthy Streets Approach?
Healthy Streets has been adopted by many London boroughs to help create a vibrant, successful city where people can live active, healthy lives. It is a system of policies and strategies to help Londoners use cars less and walk, cycle, and use public transport more. It aims to create streets that feel pleasant, safe, and attractive and identify the barriers to movement that restrict the community, particularly the most vulnerable.
