St Peter's people-friendly streets trial

Tell us what you think about people-friendly streets in St Peter’s 

This consultation has ended

Start date 13 September 2021
End date 11 October 2021

In July 2020, Islington Council introduced the St Peter's low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) trial to make the streets cleaner, greener, and healthier for all. We installed bollards and traffic cameras to reduce traffic and road danger and create more space for walking, cycling and wheelchairs, while allowing emergency vehicles and buses through.

The trial aimed: 

  • To make it easier and safer to walk and cycle
  • To clean up the air we breathe and protect and improve the environment
  • To reduce road danger, eliminate all deaths and serious injuries

We consulted on the St Peter's people-friendly streets programme from 13 September 2021 - 11 October 2021. Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback.
