Launched in March 2021 the ‘Your Street Your Way’ competition was an initiative to support a green recovery from the pandemic. The competition enabled local people to design 10 new public spaces across Lambeth and win substantial cash prizes for their efforts.

Designer winners were encouraged to find inspiration exploring design principles and target key agendas regarding the competition that include:

Community value & equity
Greening & Biodiversity
Local distinctiveness
Safety & Buildability
Sustainability & Longevity

The key deliverable for the competition seeks to empower a collaborative effort for residents, design winners and key stakeholders to get creative and design a healthier, greener city for generations to come.
