Please take the Bloomsbury2030 SuperBlock survey – London’s first pedestrian priority SuperBlock? — London Car Free Day
We were thrilled to start 2021 by collaborating with the Great Ormond Street Hospital and Bloomsbury Air on a new project to reimagine the future of Bloomsbury as London’s first pedestrian-priority neighbourhood that places young people, environmental and social resilience, and active mobility at the heart of urban design. The project brings together young patients at GOSH, artists, architects, planners and other community stakeholders to re-imagine what Bloomsbury could look like if pedestrians, shared public realm & an ambitious landscaping strategy were prioritised this year.
On 29 April 2021 we ran an online roundtable to discuss how Bloomsbury could build on international examples including Barcelona’s SuperBlock concept, Milan’s conversion of road space into public plazas, and the traffic-free city centre ambitions of Paris, Oslo, and Edinburgh. What would it take to turn Bloomsbury into London’s first pedestrian-priority, landscaped neighbourhood?
Please take the Bloomsbury2030 SuperBlock survey below. We will launch the survey results and an update on the project at this year’s World Car Free Day Summit SuperBlock session on 21 September. In the meantime, please stay tuned for more updates and do share your ideas with us on social media #Bloomsbury2030.
