Our vision

We’re calling for safe, healthy, people-friendly streets in Lee Green (SE12), Lewisham and Hither Green (SE13).

  • Safe streets – with safe space to walk, cycle and cross on busy roads and quiet, low-traffic streets in both neighbourhoods
  • Healthy streets – where active travel is the natural choice for short journeys and air is clean enough for children to breathe
  • People-friendly streets – with lots of plants and seating, and where motor traffic doesn’t dominate – especially on high streets

“It has been great to see so many people build cycling and walking into their daily travel habits. To support them, we know it’s vital to have the right infrastructure in place so everyone – cyclists, pedestrians and motorists can use our roads.”

— Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Transport , November 2020.
  • Facts and figures
    Here we summarise some of the up to date conclusions from existing Low traffic neighbourhoods, and why we think they’re needed throughout Lewisham, including Lee Green.

“The LTN has made me think about journeys when I’m afraid to say I had previously prioritised time and convenience for most of my journeys. As a family we are all walking and cycling more than ever.

Having the LTN is making us rethink how we go about shopping, meeting friends and family, how to enjoy days out without the car, commuting, extra curricular activities and travelling to health appointments too.

Just actively thinking about it means we are choosing not to drive so much more than ever before.”
