Assuming you are not suffering from consultation fatigue.... public consultation on Islington's St Peter’s low traffic neighbourhood trial opened on Monday 13 September and runs until Monday 11 October. You can take part in the consultation by visiting: https://www.islington.gov.uk/consultations/2021/st-peters-people-friendly-streets-trial
Please reply to the consultation if you or your family have enjoyed better walking and cycling east of Angel, on Danbury Street, Wharf Road, Prebend St, Quietway 2, etc since the trial started in summer 2020.
Almost all local people I speak to enjoy the new changes, but few appreciate the impact of the small but organised groups against LTNs, and the need to push back on the anti's and tell councillors to keep going.
Every response helps - it is islington's "first" LTN which they are consulting on after a year of people experiencing it. It would be good to get an overwhelmingly positive response to the trial.
The scale of the challenge to improve air quality, reduce car traffic and reduce road danger was in full view during council-organised consultation events. I attended one event at the weekend and had a chat with local officers to show our support; the Cabinet Member for transport was also there and getting absolutely mobbed by a (small) handful of (very) loud anti's - taxi lobby etc. They were shouting, bullying, and intimidating local people who have positive views of the LTN. Police / support officers attended to de-escalate.
Hats off to councillors in Islington and Hackney and elsewhere working towards the right things. Really unpleasant people are against LTNs. No wonder some councils don't have the resilience to keep LTNs in place. It takes commitment and whole lot of energy to see these things through.
