Your Request: Could you please provide me with a copy of the EQIA for the Oval Triangle please? If this is not available could you please provide me with a reason.
Our Response: The Oval to Stockwell Triangle low traffic neighbourhood was implemented referring to the EqIA written for the Transport Strategy, which was adopted at the November 2019 Cabinet meeting.
We are working on live EqIA’s for individual LTNs too for the whole emergency transport programme. We are yet to finalise the live EqIA for the Oval to Stockwell Triangle LTN.
Your Request: How much has Lambeth Council spent so far on the low traffic neighbourhoods throughout the borough?
Our Response: Lambeth has been awarded a grant of £818k from Transport for London for Low Traffic Neighbourhoods in response to Covid-19.
The current spend against this profile is circa £237k, although this doesn’t include budget committed and the final figure is targeted at the £818k.
Your Request: Please may I request copies of any air quality & pollution reports undertaken within & outside the Oval Low Traffic Neighbourhood?
Our Response: The borough publishes annual reports on air quality (ASR). Our latest ASR can be accessed here and all past ASRs can be found here. These reports are not specifically related to the Oval low traffic neighbourhood but will include information from nearby air quality monitors, including data from our three automatic monitoring sites (Vauxhall, Brixton and Streatham), as well as from our extensive network of diffusion tubes (the locations of which can be found here).
Air quality impacts of the low traffic neighbourhood will be monitored through an air quality modelling project. Details will be published of how we will do this, with it likely that we will use traffic volumes and speed, as well as data from our monitoring sites, to calculate the air quality impacts.
Your Request: Which residents associations were consulted prior to the implementation of each LTN proposal, either formally or informally? (Oval / Ferndale / Railton / Streatham)
What methods (if any) were used to consult with residents prior to the implementation of
the schemes? (Oval / Ferndale / Railton / Streatham)
- Oval:Once the Transport Strategy had been published in November 2019 the following resident’s associations requested a meeting to find out more about the plans for when and how the Oval Triangle LTN would be implemented: Fentiman & Richbourne RA, IMPACT, Albert Sq and St Stephens Association, TARA. Wider public engagement was planned to take place regarding the idea of implementing a low traffic neighborhood. However, the council followed government guidance on how to respond to the Covid19 pandemic by swiftly implementing trial schemes to provide safe space for walking and cycling and collating public feedback on them.
- Ferndale & Railton: These projects were part of the Brixton Livable Neighbourhood project which were publicly consulted on prior to the pandemic. The following groups participated in the consultations: Notre Dame Estate, Edmundsbury, Brighton Terrace, Railton Road – AGM, Bolan’s estate – Clapham High St, Tulse Hill TRA, Lilford Road TRA, Southwick House, Solon, Edmundsbury, St Matthews.
- Streatham Hill: A public consultation was held on the principle of a low traffic neighbourhood in spring 2020. The pandemic meant that this was largely held on-line. Council officers did attend three consultation events organised by TfL about their proposals for Streatham Hill so that residents could also discuss the low traffic neighborhood idea. As part of this public engagement a webinar was arranged by Streatham Action. The plan had been to then hold a further public engagement about specific proposals in the autumn. However the council followed government guidance on how to respond to the Covid19 pandemic by swiftly implementing trial schemes to provide safe space for
walking and cycling and collating public feedback on them.
Your Request: How many residents were sent letters around the proposals and what area (roads and postcodes) was that activity focused on? (Oval / Ferndale / Railton / Streatham)
