Update 13/12/2021

This is an update from the Low Traffic Neighbourhood team at Lambeth Council. The Tulse Hill consultation is ongoing. We have had a strong response to the survey so far and would encourage those who are yet to complete the survey to do so by 11.59pm Sunday 19th December. As always, our lowtrafficneighbourhoods@lambeth.gov.uk inbox is also open for questions and feedback. Since the start of the consultation on the 15th of November we have held five pop-up stalls at various times and place to provide residents with more information on completing the surveys. At the stalls we have had mechanics hosting Dr Bike sessions and Transport Police doing bike security marking, through a partnership with the UK’s largest cycle database BikeRegister. Young people were asked their thoughts on the borough’s transport network at sessions in High Trees community centre. Joyriders Joyriders is an organisation that supports women to gain confidence in their riding skills to the point where they are happy and comfortable riding a bike independently. Since April 2021 they have trained 90 ride leaders and run 259 rides for 1600+ women, across 4 cities. JoyRiders' #WinterChallenge is their main fundraising event of the year. This year they are challenging you - and anyone you know who rides a bike - to help them reach a 100,000 mile target. All rides between 1st December and 28th February count... and you can either upload directly, or link to Strava to record your rides. JoyRiders' Winter 100,000 Challenge Brixton Hill We want to ask you about the local issues regarding traffic, air quality, green spaces and the public realm in the Brixton Hill Area. We know that as we move into the future, the risks associated with our changing climate, such as flooding or extreme heat events, will increase. Therefore, we want to improve the local area to make it more resilient to the challenges of the future, whilst also creating a low traffic neighbourhood where it is easier and safer to walk and cycle for all. A Brixton Hill Commonplace page went live 10th of December 2021, where you can leave your comments. For those who have not got access to the internet or would like to get involved in face-to-face or online events to have their say and help us design an LTN that works for everyone, here’s how else you can get involved:

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods Update 10.11.21

This is an update from the Low Traffic Neighbourhood team at Lambeth Council. Have your say… From 15 November 2021, we’ll be asking people who live, work and travel in the trial low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) to share their views by doing a survey. We want your views because we’re considering making the changes permanent. This is because we’ve monitored the LTN and evidence shows that it’s achieving its aim of reducing traffic in the area. Why the LTN was introduced We put in LTNs, which use measures such as traffic filters, to help reduce motor vehicle traffic. With less traffic we aim to: • improve road safety for all users • encourage travel in more active and healthy ways • support the local economy and make streets nicer places to be • reduce air pollution and improve air quality • help prevent climate change LTNs were recommended in our long-term transport strategy agreed in 2019. They were introduced more quickly than planned because of Covid-19. How to have your say... You can pre-register for the survey now by filling out your details here (https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TulseHillLTNRegister) Need help with the survey? While the consultation is running, we’ll be out in the area and can help you complete the survey on a tablet or answer quick questions. You can find us at: • Tulse Hill Station (Palace Road/Leigham Vale junction) on Wednesday 17 November from 9am to 11am • Christ Church on Saturday 20 November from 12pm to 2pm • Josephine Avenue (Brixton Water Lane junction) on Saturday 27 November from 12pm to 2pm • Roupell Park Estate, 3-23 Redlands Way, Brixton Hill on Thursday 2 December from 2pm to 4pm • Tulse Hill Estate (passage between Leander Road and Tulse Hill) on Friday 10 December from 12pm to 2pm At these sessions we’ll also be offering free cycle repairs, and at Roupell Park Estate we’ll also be offering cycle training for children aged 4 to 7. Earlier this year the ‘Your Streets Your Way’ competition launched aiming to involve local people in designing changes on their streets that could be translated into real world projects. 10 locations were chosen across Lambeth's 5 low traffic neighbourhoods to be redesigned. 72 people submitted designs and judges awarded prizes for the categories of Winner, Runner Up and Judge’s Choice. Below are the winners of each location: Ferndale- Bedford House , Samir (u18) Oval- Mursell Estate , Lidia Gherghe Oval- Dorset Road , Grace Thomas Oval- Claylands Path, Tor Ewen Railton- Somerleyton Passage, Nick Saiger Railton- St Matthews, Location withdrawn due to lack of submissions Streatham- Livity Passage , Divya Scialo Streatham- Hillside Passage , Vladimir Guculak Tulse Hill, Roupell Park Estate, Fair-Rose (u18) Tulse Hill, Fairview Place, Location withdrawn due to lack of submissions The scale of some of these projects mean they need technical expertise in order to develop the winning ideas into detailed designs- these will be managed by landscape architects at Sustrans . Other projects have designs that are ready to be translated on the ground, these will be managed and built by local organisation In-Use, Re-Use . All of the designs are subject to engagement from local residents and stakeholders. • Tuesday 9th of November: Notice boards are being erected at winning locations to inform the local community about the project. The boards will include a QR code which links to an audio recording of the winners describing their designs and inspirations. • The Sustrans team will be running pop ups at all of the sites to talk to the local community and stakeholders and have invited the winners to attend. See details below: • Thursday 11th November: Roupell Park Estate Pop Up 3-5pm – Holmewood Road on the green space in front of Thursley House • Friday 12th November: Bedford House Pop Up 11:30am-1:30pm – Hetherington Road pedestrian entrance to Bedford House • Friday 12th November: Hillside Passage Pop Up 3-5pm – Hillside Passage. The national lottery community fund is offering from £1,000 to £10,000 of National Lottery funding to support communities across the UK to take action on climate change. Projects should reflect what matters to your community and can be small in scale. They could cover an area like: • food • transport • energy • waste and consumption • the natural environment. You do not need to be an expert in any of these areas to apply. They are particularly interested to hear from people starting to think about taking action on climate change in their communities. To find out more information visit their site here. The application deadline is 5pm on 18 November 2021.

Lambeth Council announces latest low traffic neighbourhood consultations

Lambeth Council is set to launch a consultation next month into two Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) schemes as part of our plans to create safer, healthier streets. The council is seeking the views of residents and businesses around the Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill LTNs as we consider whether to make the changes permanent. Both LTNs were introduced as temporary measures last year aimed at reducing motor vehicle traffic from certain residential roads. Residents and businesses will be able to take part in the consultation by completing a short online survey from November 15. Cllr Danny Adilypour, joint Cabinet Member for Sustainable Transport, Environment and Clean Air, said: “Throughout the trial phase of both low traffic neighbourhoods, the council has listened to the views of local people who live, or work, or travel through, Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill. This is a chance for you to provide feedback on the scheme, suggest improvements or highlight related issues in your neighbourhood before we make a final decision.” Lambeth Council has been monitoring traffic volume and air quality around both the trial Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill LTNs. Monitoring data shows vehicle traffic was reduced by 6,100 vehicles a day within Streatham Hill LTN trail, while the number of cycling journeys has increased by 55 percent. In Tulse Hill there vehicle journeys decreased by 2,000 vehicles a day and there was a 92 percent rise in cycle journeys throughout the trial period. A consultation was carried out into the Oval to Stockwell and Railton LTNs in September and responses are now being analysed before a final decision is made. A consultation into the Ferndale LTN trial will take place over the coming months. Lambeth Council was the first London borough to declare a climate emergency and is committed to taking bold steps to create a greener, healthier borough that is more climate resilient. The council has set a target to be carbon neutral by 2030 and is exploring a range of measures to ensure cleaner air and safe space for cyclists and pedestrians. Cllr Adilypour added: “We believe the use of low traffic neighbourhoods can help reduce traffic, improve road safety and enable active travel such as walking or cycling. Less dependence on motor vehicle use means we can reduce air pollution and improve air quality. Low traffic neighbourhoods are an effective way to create safer, greener and less polluted streets that respond to the challenges of the climate emergency.” The consultation will run from November 15 on both Streatham Hill and Tulse Hill low traffic neighbourhoods. For information visit the Tulse Hill commonplace or the Streatham Hill commonplace. Pre-registration is now open to receive updates and notifications on either scheme. Pre-register for the Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill LTN consultation survey Are you a disabled person? Do you work, live or socialise in Lambeth?

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods Update 09/08/21

Consultation Programme Announced: Lambeth Council has announced the start of its Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTNs) consultation programme, which will see residents given the chance to shape the future of each of the five LTNs that currently operate in the borough. The consultation process will happen in stages over the coming months, beginning with consultation on the Oval to Stockwell and Railton LTNs from September 6. The consultation will ask whether the LTNs should be made permanent or not and seek local experiences of living and working in and around the areas where the schemes operate, which will be a key input to the decision-making process. During the consultation there will be a range of engagement activities for local people, who will be asked to share their views through a survey. There will also be opportunities to feedback in person and through targeted events and focus groups for people with specific needs. LTNs form a key part of Lambeth Council’s Transport Strategy to create a future transport network for Lambeth that is healthier, more inclusive, accessible to all, and that responds to the climate emergency. Both Railton and Oval to Stockwell LTNs were established in June 2020 under Temporary Traffic Orders and subsequently moved to Experimental Traffic Orders, allowing the schemes to be enforced, data collected and statutory consultation to take place. Three other LTNs – in Tulse Hill, Streatham Hill and Ferndale – will follow the same public consultation process over the coming months. Pre-register: Railton Oval Lambeth: Zero tolerance over LTN vandalism Two people have been arrested in Lambeth following extra measures introduced to stop vandalism of signage installed by the council and plantings carried out by the community at the borough’s emergency Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes. A man was arrested on Saturday, July 31 after allegedly spray painting signs at the Ferndale Road Low Traffic Neighbourhood, and a second man was arrested the next day after allegedly stealing a sign from the same scheme which is between Brixton and Clapham. CCTV evidence has been passed to the police so further action can be taken. The arrests follow Lambeth Council announcing on July 16 that new measures would be put in place to tackle criminal vandalism at the emergency Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes which are in place to maintain a safe street environment, support green transport options and improve air quality.

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods Update 28/06/2021

This is an update from the Low Traffic Neighbourhood team at Lambeth Council. We held our latest question and answer session for the Tulse Hill LTN on Thursday 24th June 2021. Thank you to everyone who attended and for all those who asked questions and provided feedback. Given a recent rise in vandalism, we discussed the ways teams within the Council are working together with the Police to both prevent and respond to instances of vandalism. Vandalism is criminal damage; it poses a threat to public safety and will not be tolerated. We are grateful to those who have reported vandalism to us. Please continue to share information with us using the lowtrafficneighbourhoods@lambeth.gov.uk. We received questions around monitoring in relation to the South Circular and Brixton Water Lane. You can read our monitoring strategy and stage one monitoring report online. Our stage two data is currently being analysed which will feed into consultation. Residents wanted to know other ways the council are supporting more sustainable modes of travel such as more cycle storage, sign-posted walking routes, electric vehicle charging points and communications with freight to create greener delivery methods. There were also many questions around how we will conduct consultation and make sure we reach beyond a digital audience. We will be sharing more information about this in due course. The ongoing Citizen's Assembly on the Climate Change was sign-posted. 50 of Lambeth's residents are working together to recommend ways everyone in Lambeth can address climate change and its causes fairly, effectively and quickly. You can find out more here . The recording from June and previous Q&A sessions have been made available to view on the Commonplace here .

Two new modal filters in the southern part of the LTN were installed over the weekend. The signs have been unbagged and the amendments to the LTN are now LIVE. To find out more about the changes visit: Streatham Hill Commonplace A small minority of people have taken to criminal damage by removing traffic signs in Ferndale LTN. The removal of signs is not an acceptable form of protest. It is a criminal offence and puts local people, including children, at risk. Lambeth Council takes this very seriously and all vandalism is reported to the police for further investigation. Threats to residents and staff are also not acceptable and will be reported to the police for further investigation. We encourage anybody who feels unsafe to speak to the police.

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. To find out more please visit: tulsehillltn.commonplace.is/proposals/what-happens-next 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: http://moderngov.lambeth.gov.uk/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?ID=6752 Leigham Vale X Leigham Court Road As a result of feedback received regarding traffic in the southern part of the LTN, we will be investigating possible interventions that can be used to address this.

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. In collaboration with architects DSDHA , Brixton Pound and HeadstartED . We are inviting younger residents (aged 13-18) to design an improvement to the public space on Pulross Road as part of the Many Different Voices Competition . Architects DSDHA will be running digital workshops throughout March/ April to help young people with their designs, you can sign-up via the competition webpage. Vandalism: We have an ongoing issue with signs being removed or damaged throughout the Ferndale LTN. We are working closely with our Safer Neighbourhood Team and residents to resolve this. It is really important signs remain-up to ensure drivers understand the road layout and ensure the safety of all road users including pedestrians and cyclists.

Tulse Hill Low Traffic Neighbourhood Enforcement

The council has allowed time for people to get used to the changes as we know that it can take a while to adjust. However, now that the measures have been in place for over 3 months, we have begun enforcement as there is still a small minority of drivers not complying with the measures. Off the back of feedback received from businesses on Brixton Hill, we have relocated the modal filter planned for Arodene Road to immediately north of the junction with Helix Gardens. This means vehicles will not be able to make a right turn out of Helix Gardens onto Arodene Road. From 18 January onward enforcement begins and you may be fined £130 if you drive through the modal filters located at: 1. Arodene Road, immediately north of junction with Helix Gardens 2. Leander Road, immediately south of junction with Helix Road 3. Elm Park, immediately north of junction with Craignair Road 4. Upper Tulse Hill, immediately north of junction with Claverdale Road 5. Cotherstone Road, immediately south of junction with Holmewood Gardens 6. Roupell Road, outside no. 41 What happens next? An ‘experimental traffic order’ covering the scheme came into effect on 18 January 2021. The council will continue to monitor the low traffic neighbourhood in line with our published Monitoring Strategy and will shortly write to you again with data from the first independent traffic assessment that has taken place. If after 6 months the LTN is meeting its objectives, we may consider making the scheme permanent, only after conducting a public consultation with people in the area. All monitoring will be collated, analysed and published on this Commonplace. If you wish to make an objection to the Experimental Traffic Order this should be directed to bpoulter@lambeth.gov.uk with the grounds of your objection stated.
