In February 2017, the London Department of Transportation (TfL) approved a plan to implement projects that meet the concept of the Healthy Streets. The total value of these projects is ?2.1 billion. In 2018, the Mayor of London, Sadik Khan, proposed a strategy for the development of urban transport in London over the next 25 years for the public discussion. One of the central elements of the programme is the concept of Healthy Streets.
In terms of investment and influence on urban policy, the Healthy Streets project is approaching the level of the largest infrastructure projects, such as the construction of the new Crossrail underground line, although, it is just about the design of public spaces. In her presentation, Lucy Sanders, author of the Healthy Streets concept, will talk about how to make the health and well-being of residents a priority of urban policy.
