Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

4 Apr 2022

The Greenwich Liberal Democrats are decidedly not against the concept of LTN’s but have argued and continue to argue that traffic planning needs to be holistic, so as not to create traffic-free roads in one area which simply intensify and displace problems onto other nearby areas. 

Future LTN proposals must be the result of proper area wide consultation and thinking that is transparent to all and takes account of pedestrians and all transport users, ensures that pollution is not increased, school areas are safe, and emergency vehicles can move freely. 

The Council has shown a lack of ambition in exploring different types of filters that can help local traffic move more effectively while deterring cut-throughs from non-local vehicles. There is widespread relief that the Council has acknowledged its fundamental error in imposing the LTN scheme without adequate consultation and we now welcome the prospect of wider and more meaningful consultation.
