Removal of seven Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs)

This will take place between 10am and 3pm to avoid any clash with school drop off and pick up times.

The decision to remove the LTNs was taken by Ealing’s cabinet on 22 September and followed extensive consultation with local residents and consideration of available data on the impact of LTNs on air quality and encouragement of active travel.

The council received around 22,000 responses on its consultation on the future of Ealing’s LTNs and published the full results

Councillor Deirdre Costigan, deputy leader and cabinet member for climate action said: “We remain committed to active travel, but if we want to tackle the climate crisis we know we must take local people with us. We have pledged to be an open, transparent and inclusive council, and that includes being honest about what works and what doesn’t.

“We listened to the local people and as a result are removing seven LTNs but proposing to make permanent those in Adrienne Avenue and Montague Avenue/Deans Road where the majority of local people were in favour. And we continue to expand our cycle schemes and importantly, our school streets schemes.”

Any decision by cabinet is subject to a call-in period of 12 days.

The CCTV cameras in situ at the location of the seven LTNs to be removed, which use automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), will be switched off at midnight on 5 October.  Any penalty charge notices (PCNs) issued prior to that time will be valid.
