I dislike the term “Low Traffic Neighbourhood”. It’s inaccurate. Walking & Cycling are forms of traffic and, ideally, we want to see them increase. The optimum is a higher volume of walking & cycling traffic. A high traffic neighbourhood of active travel. An ATN

If you joined our Zoom meeting on Monday, you will have heard the discussion with Adam Harrison. If you missed it, here’s a summary


You will see that while Camden calls them Safer and Healthy Streets we are calling them Safe & Healthy Neighbourhoods – a name that we think retains the idea of safety and health, yet distinguishes areas from roads.

Such a obvious terminology improvement, Stephen, hiding in plain sight. Brilliant.

It maybe needs a “for all” on the end - Safe and Healthy Neighbourhoods for All - to emphasis that it needs to be inclusive, not just for the few (in cars).
