We're a group of Canonbury residents who'd like to improve our streets and public spaces to benefit local people & businesses.

Your friends & neighbours are supporting change too
Many people believe that they are alone in supporting changes that would make walking and cycling safer and easier. You aren't alone – your friends and neighbours are much more supportive than you think.
Research by YouGov has found that 77% of people in the UK support measures in their local area to encourage cycling and walking. That's 6.5 people supporters for every 1 against. Read more about the results of the research >

Healthy streets and low-traffic neighbourhoods
With roughly 3/4 of Islington residents living car-free, the council is planning to open up streets for people to use more safely. It's part of a London-wide project to make our city safer and healthier for residents.
