The strategy was written following extensive feedback from local people on what life is like between 6pm and 6am in their neighbourhoods

It sets out the vision for the borough at night time and explores how experiences differ depending on who and where you are, placing a special focus on particular groups including low-income workers, young people and women.

It contains a wide range of recommendations, such as improving lighting and transport and encouraging diversity in night time uses for town centres – beyond just eating and drinking.

Please read the strategy online and leave comments by May 14. You can click on different sections of the strategy and leave comments just on those that interest you if you wish.

Deputy council leader Cllr Kemi Akinola said: “We want our businesses and town centres to thrive, but we also want everyone to feel safe and heard – including night workers, women, marginalised communities and disabled people and people living in more deprived parts of the borough.  

“Thank you to everyone who has responded to previous call for feedback and helped us create this first draft. Now we want to know if you agree with our conclusions and think we’ve come up with solutions that will make a real difference.”
