I am sick and tired of the traffic, noise pollution and pollution caused by LTN’s this madness has to stop, it doesn’t work and Lambeth are not interested in the residents that are impacted by this. All they are interested in is the Revenue and their own self interest. How they have got away with this for so long is anybody’s guess. Sack the lot of them now.

LTNs were enforced against discredited data and in operation have caused more pollution, more delays and untold misery to the majority. Ruining lives and livelihoods. A truly disgraceful abuse of power.

I’m tired of the council making profit out of drivers, I tired of the council causing so much traffic in the borough through it’s tunnel vision in adopting LTN’s, I’m tired of the council causing so much pollution through the extra traffic caused by their out of date policies, I’m tired of the council ignoring those who it’s supposed to serve, I’m tired of the council dividing communities and causing fractions amongst residents

I believe all evidence suggests that LTNs create more pollution by clogging up traffic on major roads. They should be reversed.

Because what the Councils are doing is un democratic in every sense of the word. What affects Dulwich effects Camberwell goose green Peckham Forest Hill and Lambeth the traffic jams on them roads are horrific hours put on journey times, treble the pollution which our Councils, are dividing communities and endanger the families in the main roads whilst the let those with the LTNs breathe breathe fresh air and those in the main roads are forced to breathe polluted air, which the Councils have caused, through their complete lack of Common SENCE

I am signing because my children and I struggle to reach to school on time along with the pollution on the main road that we have to take daily.

The LTNs are illogical creating more pollution due to congestion and more miles driven. I can’t get a bike as chances are it will be stolen so I need to drive. The fines are ridiculous land amount to an extra tax. Signage is awful leading to more revenue and the maps on the flyers are not representative of the areas leading to confusion.

I am against Lambeth’s LTNs as they cause too many problems for too many people and businesses and the rationale for introducing them is based on flawed data and flawed logic.

Ian Armstrong (London, 2022-11-20)

#32

Im signing because the LTN's are extending car journeys, displacing traffic to roads where there are large housing estates and schools and creating higher pollution levels. I understand the need for London to have cleaner air but this is not the answer. If you want less drivers on the roads then the public transport infrastructure needs to be made more affordable and reliable. The more vulnerable in society are being disproportionately affected by the traffic displacement. Work/home life balance is also affected due to longer journeys.

Jan Thompson (London, 2022-11-20)

LTNs are discriminatory. Is all about creating divides. Creating private gated communities.

Sofia Sheakh (London , 2022-11-20)

These LTN’s serve no purpose and have a detrimental effect on traffic congestion on neighbouring roads.
There is a primary school on Christchurch Road that now has cars idling and back up traffic at all hour, most especially when the pupils are starting and finishing school.
When factoring in the case of four year old Ella Kissi-Debrah who lived 25 metres from the South Circular, you would think the Council would know how dangerous these measures are!

The LTN has consistently failed to reach it’s intended aim of lowering emissions. Now rather than a 5 minutes drive to shop in Brixton I’m on the road for 15-20 minutes minimum which is on average 10-15 minutes more of emission per vehicle.
Looking at the fines generated for Lambeth it’s glaringly obvious that this is a scheme to generate money.

Families are suffering and being increasingly isolated with the lack of visits from their loved ones
Tired nurses coming off a long shift or trying to get to work are now on the roads for longer which is a health and road hazard. They now have to sleep less to make their shift in time

Why are the figures requested under FOI for the number of petitions or the number of individuals that has signed against the LTNs not being published?
With the vast increases on gas, electricity and food bills how do you quantify these charges on some of the lowest paid workers in our communities.

Lambeth council have disregarded the views of it's residents. LTN's are nothing to do with pollution, but everything to do with money. Displaced traffic causes more pollution as you have to drive further and sit in traffic. Lambeth take our money, yet our streets, roads, housing is a mess. The council is corrupt. They need to go along with the LTN's!

Grace Shepherd (London, 2022-11-20)

LTN are causing misery on boundary roads delaying busses, residents & tradespeople. Gridlock is increasing essential journey times & causing more pollution in the process. Making essential journeys longer is helping no one.

The LTNs benefit no one but the council. They do not encourage active travel, ASB and personal safety is compromised. Pollution is higher than ever!

Natasha Sanasi (London SW2, 2022-11-20)

LTNs make getting to my Dr impossible. Will make my commute to work twice as long and have increased pollution above WHO regulations and my property is in the top 96% of polluted areas in the UK. No consultation, no response from local councillors and complete disregard for residents.

LTN wrecking the life of resident , and dramatically increased air pollution

Andriy Shalay (London, 2022-11-21)

- Cars continue to speed up and down my (now very quiet due to the LTNs) road causing a danger to residents. I believe this is in part down to the fact that they have to drive further distances to reach their destination because far more simple and expeditious routes have been blocked by the LTNs.
- pollution has increased on the main roads and this pollution won't ONLY affect those on the main roads as depending on wind direction we are all likely to be affected by the smog.
- Because of the LTNs as a driver I have been forced to rack up countless more miles over the past 3 years. This has meant more wear and tear on my car, my tires, my brakes and more petrol burnt. ALL of these things damage my wallet and more importantly the environment! Meaning I can't save as much for a newer model which will force me to continue to pollute at the rate that I currently am.
- As a cyclist (yes many drivers cycle too!) who wants to get from A to B quickly and safely I naturally will cycle on the main roads so I am forced to use polluted roads full of tailbacks with angry drivers who themselves have been forced not only off interconnecting side roads but also out of bus lanes and onto newly created single lane roads in favour of rarely used cycle lanes. This has helped to create greater division and resentment from drivers towards cyclists which is very bad for road safety.
- Speaking of safety, the now very queit road that I live on and the neighbourhood in general is a ghost town compared to how it used to be. Fewer people are passing through so there are much fewer eyes in the area. Add to that the fact that over the past 10 years of so the council have reduced the amount of street lights per street which together will increase not only the potential for crime but also people's fear of crime.

Ours has decimated income for local businesses , adversely affected our older neighbours who cannot walk far and their cabs now cost an extra £5 per journey minimum, the ugly street planters are untended and have become urinals and cyclists are so feted they now ride on pavements with abandon. Who cares anout those like my daughter who are blind? They certainly don’t. Those who instigated this policy have probably never met a disabled, old or working class person. Why do all the LTN’s adversely affect residents of council estates? Ableist, ageist and classist policy. Not exactly ‘inclusivve.’

Since LTN are on , I can't drop my child to her father's house on ABC Rd on my way to work , my child has been arriving late at schools most morning due to the traffic jam on A23 or via knollys Rd/ leigham crt Rd which is incontrollable.
Walking up and down LTN'S at nights are not safe anymore due to lack of lighting and presence.
Huge level up of thief going around as the streets becomes more quiet and deserted.
We cannot access our sport activities clubs within 5 mns and have now to travel up to 35 mns going around the LTN's .
Pollution and traffic are jammed on very close and small axed road which makes no sense at all to just create more stone away. It makes no difference.
More accidents have happened on A23 and Streatham hill high street.
I would understand if the council wanted to proritise only 1 street for bus and emergency access but not all. I live on palace road which already have a one way only , now the LTN's makes us spend more time in traffic, spend more petrol being in traffic and not resolving any pollution issue as we never had an traffic jammed within those street .
You need to prioritise only school streets on limited time such as Hitherfiled road on drop off and collection time of school .
What about the electric motor vehicules? How can you differ and not allow them to go through LTN based on reducing pollution?? Still nonsense.
You have implemented parking payment few years ago on our residential street , and now by implementing LTN's you are penalising own resident to pay parking resident to access their own street to park their own car in front of their own house!! How much more money can you think of forcing us to pay??

Concentrated pollution is the most toxic form. LTNs have evidently concentrated traffic & pollution on their boundary roads, they were implemented based on false DfT data which has been confirmed as being inaccurate and has recently been corrected to show no change in vehicle numbers using our roads.

According to TFL data the per journey mileage that vehicles now travel around LTN areas has increased well above the national average. More mileage in more congested traffic clearly means more toxic pollution.

Lambeth Council clearly have discriminated against residents who have disabilities, there’s very little done to mitigate / exempt blue badge holders, carers and emergency workers.

The independent SYSTRA report commissioned by Lambeth council clearly indicates residents are against LTNs and yet they’re still here and Lambeth Council are planning yet more of them. In light of all evidence the only possible reason for them to exist is as a revenue source for what has been said to be one of the least trusted & possibly corrupt councils in the UK.
We all want a cleaner greener future but LTNs are not.

The road restrictions are making life a misery. Having to go miles out of our way to get anywhere. We’re forced to sit in traffic on the already busy main roads. How is that helping with air pollution and congestion.

The traffic congestion on the Leigham court and Leigham. Vale rd junction. is atrocious and causing more and more pollution. My daughter has to battle through the traffic everyday to get to her school (Dunraven). Not only is this congestion dangerous as cars are now driving on the wrong side of the road to get across as there’s no way to get to Leigham vale rd otherwise due to the congestion, but it’s also damaging her health. I am sick of it and this MUST stop!

Andrea Pearce (Lomdon , 2022-11-22)

The LTNs are discriminatory and unfair. As a driver of a Motability car, the introduction of these measures has made my son’s life more difficult

Jane Daniel (London , 2022-11-22)

#103

Unfortunately the LTN measures have locked us in our neighbourhood, immediate access to the South Circular and adding 20 mins minimum to arrive at the same point. It's an insane waste of time now that we have to take our daughter to school on that that side. It would make more sense to allow freedom from people in the neighbourhood to move about freely and reduce through traffic for other vehicles. But even that I guess is discriminatory!

Johann Courtin (London, 2022-11-23)

#104

I fear for the health of those living on main roads and not so main roads where traffic has been forcefully redirected causing more pollution through additional petrol being used and as a consequence of congestion in said area, there is idling traffic endangering the lives of children on those roads

Danuta Zalega (London, 2022-11-23)

Because the whole ltn idea is absolutely pointless and causes a lot more disruptions for road users then the reason that it was put forward for which actually does not even help OR MAKE ANY SENSE.!! CANCEL THE LTNs NOW!

I do not want LTNs to be imposed in streatham wells. It will seriously impact congestion and pollution on boundary roads and takes away people’s freedom of movement. It will impact on emergency services and bus timetables as it is proposed near the narrowest part of the A23 Streatham High Road

I live within the Streatham Hill LTN. I have run my childminding business for over 20yrs and these are ruining my business as parents can’t get to me without stressing in traffic. My living hood will be ruined. I don’t know what I will do it’s scaring me.

The roads are also far to quiet and dark to allow my 17yrs old daughter to walk in or even myself. Nighttime has become a no go area.

I'm signing because Lambeth Council openly admits that LTNs are a social experiment to attempt to force behavioural change. LTNs were created when residents were locked down by government, when normal services were closed and people were unable to ask questions or challenge council decisions. LTNs were an authoritarian move by Lambeth Council.
