St Martin’s Lane

St Martin’s Lane has great potential to become a premier street in the heart of the West End. 

Transforming St Martin’s Lane

We propose major improvements to reinvigorate the St Martin’s area, elevating its status as a core part of London’s West End.

We seek to improve the quality of the public realm to grow the area’s appeal as a great place to live, work, visit and invest. Through these transformational changes, St Martin’s will be a place that residents, businesses and world-class arts institutions will be proud to call home.

Pedestrian Priority

St Martin’s Lane would become a pedestrian priority street from 12 noon until midnight. Footways would be doubled in width, with a flush carriageway, creating a friendlier environment for pedestrians, to attract and retain visitors and also for alfresco dining to become a permanent feature of St Martin’s Lane.

Greening

A sequence of elegant trees, surrounded by planting, new seating and architectural lighting would transform St Martin’s Lane by day and night, enhancing the environment as an attractive place to visit, enjoy world-class performing arts, work and do business.

 

*Proposals are subject to detailed design, consultation and statutory approvals

Improvements throughout St Martin’s Lane

The area will enjoy added benefits including:

  • Could halve the number of vehicles on the street
  • Safer roads through periods with less traffic/managed traffic
  • Reduced pollution and carbon emissions, contributing to a net zero carbon economy
  • Reduced flood risk through the incorporation of natural drainage and planting
  • Reduced crime and anti-social behaviour through designing spaces that discourage these types
    of activity
  • Improved wellbeing of people who live, work or visit the area, by creating spaces where
    people can relax
  • Curated, accessible public art and on-street events
