Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) have been badly implemented and communicated by Ealing Council. This has led to division in communities, and because of this the Council is backtracking on the schemes. LTNs can and do reduce traffic levels, and if well communicated have the support of local residents. As the Green Party candidate in West Ealing and Hanwell for the Council Election next year, I wanted to set out what I would do differently. Here’s the starting point we can all agree on: All residential streets must have air pollution levels below the WHO guidelines1.
Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) are causing quite a stir in Ealing. You are either for them or against them; there is no middle ground. During my campaigning, the thing people ask me about most is the LTNs.

I joined the Green Party because I felt frustrated that while we can all make personal ‘green’ choices, individual change is not enough. A sustainable choice needs to be made the easiest choice; and for that we need our communities, organisations, businesses and all levels of government to act together.
