This is something which many people and groups have been campaigning for for years and is a most welcome announcement. St Peter’s will be the first in early July, followed by Canonbury, Highbury, Clerkenwell, Nags Head and St Mary’s. Richard Watts, leader of the council, confirmed that by the end of 2020, 30% of the borough would have a LTN and that by mid 2021, he expected to see half of the borough with a LTN. Great to see strong community campaigning by three of our members, Living Streets Islington Clean Air Parents and Cycle Islington. I would love to get community parklets and planters on the agenda too as it seems a good opportunity to include them as part of the plans. More on the Councill’s plans here. Have a look at the Commonplace map where you can add your comments about your local area’s streets and where improvements are needed.
