Dear Climate Emergency Camden

I hope you are all well. I am a masters student at UCL's Bartlett School of Planning and a Camden resident. I am writing my dissertation on the implementation and impact of LTNs within the London context and I am hoping to run a focus group with stakeholders from the Camden LTNs as part of my research. If someone from your group would be interested in joining the discussion, your input would be so valuable. The discussion will take place on Microsoft Teams and will last about an hour. The discussion will be confidential and the data produced for my research will be anonymised.

If one of you is interested, please let me know your availability over the next couple of weeks.


Kind regards,

Transport for London wins appeal over Streetspace active travel programme

Court of Appeal reverses decision from earlier this year that City Hall initiatives to promote cycling and walking were unlawful

Transport for London (TfL) has today won a Court of Appeal decision against a ruling from the High Court earlier this year that initiatives aimed at promoting active travel and making roads safer for cyclists and pedestrians were unlawful.

In January, High Court judge Mrs Justice Lang ruled that TfL’s Streetspace programme, designed to promote active travel after the coronavirus pandemic hit and aimed at given more space to cyclists and pedestrians, was unlawful.

> Blow for active travel in London as High Court judge rules Sadiq Khan’s Streetspace initiative unlawful

The action was originally brought by two organisations linked to members of the licensed cab trade, the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association and the United Trade Action Group, which argued that the Streetspace programme, TfL guidance to boroughs on low traffic neighbourhoods, and the closure of Bishopsgate in the City of London were all unlawful.

The judge in the initial case said that the programme was “seriously flawed” and went “beyond what was reasonably required to meet the temporary challenges created by the pandemic.”

But she also invited TfL to “substantially” revise its plans ahead of any appeal, and said that even if that appeal were lost, more time could be granted before the quashing orders are issued.

TfL said that today’s judgment, together with the results of last month’s Mayoral election where Labour’s Sadiq Khan secured a second term despite Conservative candidate Shaun Bailey, among others, making opposition to policies aimed at reducing motor traffic and promoting active travel a key part of its campaigns, was a vindication of its policies.

> London voters back LTNs and cycle lanes, analysis of mayoral election results reveals

Khan said that today’s decision, combined with the election result, “forms a double mandate allowing us to continue with our bold measures.

“Our changes to Bishopsgate make it safer for people walking and cycling. This central London scheme is the centrepiece of the work we have done across the capital during my first term

“Our world-leading Streetspace schemes are helping protect the health of Londoners, and this decision reinforces my determination to make it safer and easier for Londoners to walk and cycle, and to help ensure a green and sustainable recovery from the pandemic,” he added.

not care less about fines as they would be paid by company and passed on to
customers. Others will use altered number plates

I suspect behaviour will change to some extent when fines land. We have seen
this with all ANPR areas - initially ignored, fines hit, drivers complain,
behaviour changes. If it still does not change post fines, the council
should look at other measures, eg bollards, but too early to change right
now in my opinion.

Delivery truck drivers say they do not care about the fine as it will be passed on to customers, I am told that taxis will not come into the area, Council officer has said that local people should use Vicars Road. It has a nursery and EPH on it. To state my position,  keep vehicles unless essential out of our area but ensure locals’ needs are met.

I think Camden are saying that they will have a specific survey but it is not available yet. Meanwhile you can comment by email and there will be a full consultation after 6 months or you can use the general Commonplace Safe Travel map as Chris says.

Good idea to continue to make comments via Commonplace on the other schemes, especially the contentious ones. Some of these will be up for full consultation soon (at the end of the ETO periods) so we will need to be ready to support them - we'll be using this group to publicise.

The comments don't work in the same way as comments on the previous schemes (you have to click on a link and then comment on the map by dropping a pin, there is no dedicated section for QC comments that I can find, though I may well be missing it).  I suppose it would be good to support it by adding pins to the map anyway, recent comments on the map about the QC scheme are largely negative

Also, many of the other comments on the commonplace site are quite old, I think it might be a good idea to express continued support for the other various schemes now the pandemic is (apparently) winding down and the initial Covid-19 rationale for making these changes will presumably be challenged.  Some of the later changes which I thought would be more controversial have attracted very few comments indeed (such as Harmood St) either way, perhaps people got tired of commenting.  

The comments are still open on all the previous schemes under this link, and for the previous schemes it's simpler to make comments as there is a dedicated section to comment on each scheme:

You may be interested in some organised rides that are coming up.
  1. This Saturday (May 15th) Geoff is leading the first official CCC ride for over a year. This will be a short (8 mile) family-friendly circuit of the southern part of Camden from Swiss Cottage via Regents Park using segregated cycle lanes, traffic free spaces and quiet roads. It's a particularly good introduction to some of the new cycle infrastructure. Details at https://camdencyclists.org.uk/events/cycle-safely-on-camdens-roads/ - note that numbers are limited and you need to book.

  1. Our friends at Camden Clean Air have put together a self-guided tour of Camden to mark the start of Bike Week on Sunday 30th May.

The Camden Clean Air Cycle is a bike ride for the whole community to take part in to celebrate cycling, cleaner air, and the Borough of Camden. Taking place on the first day of Bike Week, Sunday 30 May, the 22km route will take riders all around the wonderful Borough of Camden. To make it even more enjoyable, riders are encouraged to stop off for refreshments at partner coffee shops that are signposted along the way. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not want to encourage a mass meet up of riders so people can complete the ride at any point between 10am and 4pm.

Register your place here: https://camdencleanair.org/events/the-camden-clean-air-cycle/

They are looking for help with static marshals; if you can help, please contact Georgina McGivern gmcgivern@....

Geoff will lead another ride at the end of Bike Week, on June 6th, from Sidings to Brent Park - keep an eye on our website (https://camdencyclists.org.uk/) for details. Hopefully, by then Covid restrictions will be further lifted.

And don't forget our AGM on Monday with guest speaker Sarah Berry. Details here. Hope to see of you then.
