Streets for people

This scheme has the following aims:

  • Improve road safety.
  • Help tackle the climate emergency
  • Make walking and cycling enjoyable, safe and easy ways of getting around.
  • Reduce inequalities in health and wellbeing 
  • Reduce the amount of cut-through traffic
  • Encourage people to shop local to help businesses and reduce car use.
  • Create a greener and healthier environment by improving air quality and reducing pollution and noise levels.
  • Make more space on our pavements for social distancing to help keep everyone safe from COVID-19.

What was introduced

  • Edmund Street: Improving the crossing outside the nature reserve entrance and adding a traffic filter south of the junction with Elmington Road
  • Elmington Road: Adding a traffic filter east of the junction with Benhill Road
  • Havil Street: Adding a traffic filter south of the junction with Southampton Way
  • Dalwood Street: Adding a traffic filter and a bench east of the junction with Havil Street and improving the crossing at the junction with Havil Street
  • Lidgate Street: Creating an informal cycle crossing from Lidgate Street across Southampton Way

The aim of this consultation is to determine whether the changes should stay where they are or if we should amend the location so that it better suits the needs and access preferences of residents in the area but still meets the objectives of the low-traffic neighbourhood.

This is a public consultation which will inform a decision on whether to amend, keep or remove measures.

Since we want to understand the views of residents from all demographics, we ask that you complete the questions about where you live and your backgrounds at the end of the survey. This information will only ever be used for monitoring. We will not publish any personal data.

You are also invited to a zoom meeting on Saturday 14th August at 4.30pm. Register your interest here:

Why your views matter

The results of this questionnaire, as well as the engagement events we are carrying out this summer will be considered alongside monitoring data from the streets themselves to produce a report and a recommendation to either:

One: Make the scheme permanent
If the data and consultation feedback indicates that the trials are meeting our objectives, we will recommend making the current experimental traffic orders permanent.

Two: Make amendments to the existing scheme
If the data, consultation feedback and safety considerations indicate that changes can be made to improve a scheme then we will recommend making amendments.

Three: Remove all or part of the scheme
If the scheme is not achieving the benefits expected, we can remove all or part of the scheme (subject to safety considerations).

What happens next

We will:

  • Undertake public consultation between late-July and mid-September
  • Review consultation responses and data gathered between end-September and October
  • Make recommendations for consideration by the council in mid-November
  • If changes are approved and measures are to be retained in some form, statutory consultation will take place on a Traffic Management Order prior to a final decision to implement any permanent changes being taken.
