Low traffic neighbourhoods are created by preventing through motor traffic from using minor residential roads. They reduce the overall amount of motor traffic (without increasing traffic on surrounding streets), and encourage people to walk and cycle more.
Last year we successfully petitioned for a low traffic neighbourhood in Headstone South. The council listened to us and has committed £25,000 towards traffic counts, feasibility studies and resident workshops to develop a scheme.
Now residents in West Harrow also want less traffic and healthier streets. Please support our petition (please sign only if you are a Harrow resident): https://www.change.org/p/harrow-council-create-a-low-traffic-neighbourhood-in-west-harrow
Thank you for your support!
