In September 2020, as part of our people-friendly streets programme, we introduced a low traffic neighbourhood trial in Clerkenwell Green.
Like many neighbourhoods within the borough, Clerkenwell Green has suffered from increased traffic volumes in recent years from the use of the area as a short-cut.
The trial aimed to:
- Make it easier and safer to walk and cycle
- Clean up the air we breathe
- Reduce road danger
We introduced the following traffic filters: Clerkenwell Green where it connects to Aylesbury Street, both ends of Sans Walk, and both ends of Corporation Row. The two filters in Corporation Row are enforced by cameras.
You can see locations of the traffic filters on Google maps or view the map of the Clerkenwell Green low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) at the bottom of the page. A downloadable version of the map is available in the 'Useful documents' section of this page.
Next steps for Clerkenwell Green
The positive outcomes from the consultation and monitoring reports have supported our decision to continue exemptions for Blue Badge holders who live inside the Clerkenwell Green low traffic neighbourhood from camera enforced traffic filters on a permanent basis. The documents that relate to the decision to move forward with these changes are provided in the ‘Useful documents’ section below.
- After 6 February, access to Clerkenwell Green from Clerkenwell Road will no longer be possible. A map of the Clerkenwell Green LTN reflecting the new access arrangements can be found at the bottom of this page. You can also find more information on this in this information leaflet.
- We will retain the existing advisory sign stating 'Unsuitable for long vehicles' at the south-west bound section of Skinner Street adjacent to numbers 45 to 49 that leads to Corporation Row. You can find out more information on the exemption and read our Blue Badge holder frequently asked questions.
The council is delivering public realm improvements at Clerkenwell Green. These proposals were consulted on in 2017, receiving support from 82 per cent of 433 respondents and will further enhance the benefits of the Clerkenwell Green low traffic neighbourhood. You can find out more about the proposals on the Clerkenwell Green webpage.

Map of the Clerkenwell Green low traffic neighbourhood
Traffic filters are at the following locations: Clerkenwell Green where it connects to Aylesbury Street, both ends of Sans Walk, and both ends of Corporation Row. The two filters in Corporation Row are enforced by cameras and the proposals for the public realm scheme would change the bollard-enforced filter on Clerkenwell Green close to Aylesbury Street to a camera-enforced filter. The map below shows vehicle access routes for Clerkenwell Green from 6 February 2023.
