Street Design Competition:
The Your Streets, Your Way competition looked to harness the creativity of residents by asking them to transform their local environment. The competition sought a community-led vision to improve the borough for both people and the planet. In Streatham Hill, two locations were selected that community members were asked to submit design proposals for:
The Livity School Passage
The winning design has been developed by InUse, ReUse in collaboration with the competition winner - Divya Scialo. Its theme is the hidden yet crucial world of soil and the flora and fauna that it is home to.
The design was translated by a local mural artist and finished in early 2022.
Hillside Passage (Sustrans)
The winning entry is under development to create a detailed design. Sustrans have run engagement focused on the competition winners, local residents and people who travel through the areas:
Notes from the board, conversations and interactions were collated and formed a core part of the design development process.
Engagement with competition winners:
Sustrans continued to engage the competition winner throughout the design process through meetings and site visits. The winner also provided Sustrans with a voice note recording explaining their idea. These were shared at each of the three locations on the engagement boards via QR code as well as on social media.
The detailed design for Hillside Passage is still being finalised.
