Make street cameras work for residents

Islington Council must use camera filters to give local residents continued direct access to their own streets

Our streets are for the benefit of all residents. Low Traffic Neighbourhoods(LTNs), poorly introduced with insufficient consultation, are setting pedestrians, cyclists and motorists against each other.

Yet a thoughtful and consensually supported LTN scheme can create safe, quiet streets and clean air for us all.

We are calling on the Labour Council to hold Citizens’ Assemblies to engage residents on how best to introduce LTNs in their area. We must involve people BEFORE decisions are taken; not hold a ‘consultation’ a whole year after LTNs are brought in, as Labour is currently doing. 

But actions can be taken immediately to improve the way LTNs operate.

The Islington Liberal Democrat's answer is this:

Use street camera filters - many already in place - to allow residents easy access to their own streets.

Right now, these cameras are used for emergency services only; it is an easy step to use their automatic number plate recognition ability for residents too.

Our petition to Islington Borough Council

" Too many people are having to take long, circuitous car journeys simply to reach their own homes. This defeats the whole point of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. We call on Islington Council to use street camera filters to allow residents to access and park on their own street."

We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to Islington Borough Council.
