Low Traffic Neighbourhoods: Watch the On London and London Society… – onlondon.co.uk

Some of the capital’s new LTNs have had very mixed receptions. We tried to find a pathway to peace

Although polling evidence suggests that Londoners on the whole are in favour of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, some of the 160 new ones introduced across 21 of the capital’s boroughs have met with fierce opposition and thrown a number of wider discontents into sharp relief. On London and The London Society organised a webinar, which took place last Thursday evening, at which differing views could be aired in a friendly way and some possible resolutions to LTN disputes identified. We are extremely grateful to Caroline Russell, Puru Miah, Leonie Cooper and On London star reporter Charles Wright for being the panellists, and also to the 80 people who virtually attended. You can now watch the hour-long event in full below. The bloke chairing the proceedings is me.
