What are Low Traffic Neighbourhoods?
Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (often called LTNs for short) form a key part of BANES Council's approach to managing traffic issues and air pollution across the city and BANES is committed to the development of LTNs, working with communities.
A number of Entry Hill residents have already attended public meetings at St Luke's Church and the Guildhall in 2019, which outlined the positive impact an LTN can have on local communities. Where these have already been tried, they have shown real improvements in safely and air quality, using various mechanisms to divert commuter traffic to main roads and reducing the traffic flow in residential neighbourhoods.
If you would like to know more about LTNs, please look online for examples in places such as Waltham Forest. Here are a couple of links to useful information:
