Low Traffic Neighbourhood Thoughts

The Government has recently stated it "expects local authorities to make significant changes to their road layouts to give more space to cyclists and pedestrians", as one way of enabling people to travel safely whilst observing social distancing rules - as an alternative to cars and public transport.

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods are a way of tackling congestion and rat-running on residential roads.

The charity Living Streets defines low traffic neighbourhoods as “groups of residential streets, bordered by main or ‘distributor’ roads (the places where buses, lorries, non-local traffic should be), where ‘through’ motor vehicle traffic is discouraged or removed.”

We support Low Traffic Neighbourhoods but we want to see temporary closures tried first so that we can see if particular proposals work to reduce traffic without adverse effects.

Let us know what you think about the Council's proposals.
