Low Traffic Neighbourhoods Update 08/03/2021

Hi residents,

This is our first in what will be a bi-weekly update on Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN)s. We will use this newsletter to ensure everyone feels informed going forwards. We want to let you know what we've been doing and anything you should look out for/ sign-up to in the coming weeks regarding the respective LTNs.

Tulse Hill LTN:

Enforcement began in the Tulse Hill LTN on 18/01/2021, this included the introduction of a modal filter on Arodene Road. We hope to publish the traffic data and community feedback in a Stage 1 Monitoring report by the end of March.

TRA Updates:

We held a Q&A Session with residents of St Martins Estate 10/02/2021. We are happy to meet with Tenants and Residents Associations to update on the progress of the LTN schemes and answer any questions you may have.

Vandalism:

We have an ongoing issue with cameras being moved in the Tulse Hill LTN and we are working closely with our Safer Neighbourhood Team and residents to resolve this. It is important the LTN is enforced so we can gain a clear understanding of how the LTN is impacting traffic flow. With delays to enforcement, we may have to extend the Experimental Traffic Order to gather sufficient data for monitoring.

Please report information about signs being removed or damaged with date and details to:

tulsehill.snt@met.police.uk

Your Safer Neighbourhood Team Officers are:

• Lucy Burrows

• Andrew Harland

• Kunle Kolawole

Online Q&A:

We are going to begin holding a series of digital questions and answer sessions with residents to give you an opportunity to speak to officers about the changes happening in the area.

Streatham Hill LTN

Following feedback from residents regarding parking issues that were caused by the interaction of Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) M with the LTN a recommendation for the 152 affected households outside the CPZ to have the ability to purchase permits for zone M was made on the 27/01/2021.

A decision to allow Hillside residents south of the modal filter and Palace Road residents west of the filter (highlighted in the above image) to purchase a zone M permit, for as long as the trial Streatham Hill LTN remains in operation was made on the 04/02/2021. Details of the full decision and associated equalities impact assessment can be found at:

    The parklet is a public space with the potential to serve a variety of functions including ;

  • a resting space for people walking, running or cycling
  • an area for information on community activities
  • a place for kids to play
  • a convenient waiting area for shoppers
  • A place for locking bicycles while shopping
  • The design of the parklet has been reviewed to ensure it complies with highway requirements, including the implementation of traffic islands and markings.

    Ferndale LTN:

    Based on community feedback and traffic data gathered during autumn 2020, we are working on alterations to the Ferndale LTN. This should address existing issues and lead to a truly Low Traffic Neighbourhood. We hope to share validated traffic data in a monitoring report in the coming weeks and the consequential changes to the scheme. We will be sending letters to all residents to notify them of the changes.
