Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA):
We have used data and engagement to understand who lives and works within the Oval to Stockwell LTN and the amenities and services that might be impacted both positively and negatively by the scheme.
By assessing the impacts we have seen the benefit of changing the way streets are used and identified ways to reduce any negative consequences of the change
You can read the full EqIA below.
Transport for All:
We know everyone experiences changes to the street differently and we have run targeted engagement with specific user groups including a pre-consultation survey. Specifically regarding our Disabled residents, we have commissioned Transport for All to give a more detailed breakdown of how people might be impacted by the scheme, taking a pan-impairment approach.
They are continuing to run engagement during each consultation and the full report will be considered as part of the decision on the LTN.
