LTN consultations

Ealing Council is strongly committed to supporting active travel schemes as part of its fight to tackle the climate crisis and has recently conducted a series of consultations to ensure that residents have a direct say in the future of schemes including a series of trial low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs).

Details of the trial LTN schemes.

The council has been seeking views from residents and businesses throughout the LTN trial period including a survey and feedback on the Common Place platform and inviting residents to express their views on the schemes by email. The most recent survey conducted in late June-July asked residents living in each LTN, those on boundary roads and others whether they wanted the schemes to continue at the end of the trial period.

A summary of the results from the recent consultations is set out below and more detailed data is found in the individual LTN consultation summaries.

Based on data reviewed so far, the council is proposing to move forward with two of the borough's LTNs which were supported by a majority of residents who live within the trial scheme areas.

  • Adrienne Avenue low traffic neighbourhood
  • Deans Road and Montague Avenue low traffic neighbourhood

The data also shows that seven of the borough’s trial LTNs were not supported by the majority of residents.

  • Acton Central low traffic neighbourhood
  • Junction Road low traffic neighbourhood
  • Loveday Road low traffic neighbourhood
  • Mattock Lane low traffic neighbourhood
  • Olive Road low traffic neighbourhood
  • West Ealing North low traffic neighbourhood
  • Bowes Road low traffic neighbourhood

A final decision on these schemes is likely to be taken at the council’s Cabinet meeting in September once full data has been gathered to meet new Government requirements which were only introduced at the end of July.

Further information on proposals and decision-making process can be found in the council’s statement which also sets out the council’s plans to make permanent a huge expansion in our safe cycling infrastructure and to provide five new school streets from September, on top of the ten already made permanent.

Detailed summaries of the results of the consultations for each LTN can be found in the links below. These set out all of the data being used to inform decisions including the latest survey, Common Place feedback and support or opposition received by email responses.

Summaries also contain the latest analysis of traffic monitoring and air quality monitoring statistics. Where possible, these show a comparison of data from before the implementation of trial schemes, during stages of lockdown when traffic levels may have been affected and the latest data. Traffic monitoring data slides also show a more simple comparison of “before” and “after” LTN implementation.

Monitoring data shows data from air quality monitoring stations in the vicinity of the LTN’s and also data from a “control site” which is far enough away from the LTN not to have been affected but collected data on a road with similar characteristics for comparison.

This information is all included for full transparency but are inevitably fairly complex and technical data. These continue to be reviewed and updated data and summaries will be provided as part of the future Cabinet report.
